May 16th, 2016 was the ultimate date on which inkomstenbelasting (IB ) (income tax) returns could be filed. 3829 taxpayers did this in time.
The Belastingdienst CN would like to thank all these people for doing so.
This year a total of 7435 IB tax-return forms were distributed. A large number of the taxpayers which have not yet filed their tax return used the extension options offered by the Belastingdienst.
This year it was for the first time also possible to file IB tax returns online.
The Belastingdienst would like to express additional thanks to the people who filed their tax return online, because they helped to increase our experience with digital services.
Naturally the Belastingdienst has already started processing the tax returns. This is done in an automated way but also partly manually. The complexity of a tax return also plays a role in the duration of the processing. The more complicated the tax return, the more time this will take. As a result it may be possible that a partner or neighbour, for instance, receives notification earlier, while they filed their tax return at a later date.
Everyone who filed his tax return by May 16th at the latest, will receive notification from the Belastingdienst before October 1st, 2016. This notification could be in the form of a question letter or the tax assessment.
Tax returns received after May 16th, 2016 will be processed at a later moment. The Belastingdienst will do its utmost to send a notification for these tax returns as soon as possible as well.
