Here in the Netherlands, at least for me , the taxes start coming on the beginning of the year. I had so many taxes to pay that i will only finish paying then this month.
One thing they do here, they let you pay in 3 times and give you ate least 1 month time to pay, they just want you to pay it.
When i lived in Portugal i remember receiving bills with just one week to pay , sometimes not expecting that amount.
Here they give you time, but they left you dry, i payed in total till the end of this month, in taxes, not bills, €839.24.
It was a long ride, using the calculator to be able not to fail the date. Finally i am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. They have here so many taxes , how can they had the worst European month defice in February or March, i do not remember correctly.
Here is a list of what i had to pay:
Municipal year tax: €455.13
It includes €100 by the 2 dogs i have, it´s about €50 per dog This one they let you pay in 3 times.
Water/sewer year tax: €191,11
This one they give you an warning of 2 months.
Road tax (every 3 months): €193
So expect at least the first months of the years to be just for paying the taxes and bills. Take your calculator of the drawer and good luck….
Till next time,
