What does 'loonheffingskorting' (wage tax credit) mean and how can I turn it on or off?

Modified on Wed, 20 Mar at 3:50 PM

Loonheffing (wage tax) is a tax that you have to pay on your wages. This levy must be paid to the tax authorities.


Every working Dutch citizen is entitled to 'loonheffingskorting': wage tax credit. This tax credit is deductible from your tax. This means you pay less tax on your wages.


You can only use your wage tax credit for one job. This means that if you have multiple jobs, you have to choose which job you want it to apply to. It's best to apply the wage tax credit to the job where you have the highest income.
