If you move to Eindhoven, or if you move to an independent address in Eindhoven, you must pay the waste collection charge from the first full month following your arrival.
When and how should I pay?
You will receive a local tax bill at the end of January each year. It will include the waste collection charge. You can pay the amount on the bill all at once or authorise a direct debit. In that case, the amount will be deducted from your bank account in 11 instalments. More information about direct debits.
What happens if I move away?
Moving house within Eindhoven
Are you moving house within Eindhoven and will the composition of your household remain the same? Nothing will change. You will receive a local tax bill at the end of January of the new year, for the same number of people at the new address.
Are you moving house within Eindhoven and the composition of your household will be changing? Nothing will change. You will receive a local tax bill at the end of January of the new year, showing the revised rate, for a different number of people at the new address.
Moving to another municipality
Are you moving to another municipality? Then the waste collection charge will be reduced automatically. You will only pay the charge for the months you lived in Eindhoven, and you will receive a local tax bill in your new municipality.
Moving to a care home
Do you live alone, and are you moving to a care home? You will not have to pay the waste collection charge for the time you are no longer living independently. This will take effect from the first month after are registered at your new address.
Does your household consist of multiple persons and is the annual tax bill in your name? In that case, too, you are entitled to a waiver from the first month after you are registered at you new address. A remaining resident at the old address will be designated the new taxable person. This person will receive a new tax bill for the remaining whole months of the year.
What should I do in the event of other changes in my personal situation?
The size of your household can change in the course of the year. For example, if you divorce and continue to live alone in your current home, or if your partner moves permanently to a care home. In such cases, you can apply for a reduction in taxes. You can do that at the digital tax portal under the heading 'lodge an objection'. Would you rather do this by post? Send your application to Gemeente Eindhoven, Belastingen, Postbus 90150, 5600 RB Eindhoven.
What if I can't pay the tax?
Can I lodge an objection?
Certainly. If you disagree with the bill, you can lodge an objection. You will however have to pay the bill. If your objection is accepted, the amount you paid will be transferred to your bank account. For more information, go to challenging a tax bill.
