Reductions, exemptions and reduced rates

Reductions, exemptions and reduced rates

What are the different reductions, exemptions and premiums?
You will find here the different possibilities. You will also find an explanation of each type, as well as the certificates needed to submit your request.

Attention : reductions and exemptions are calculated according to the situation on 1 January of the tax year.

Am I entitled to a tax reduction as a tenant?
Yes, as a tenant, you are entitled to the following reductions:

  • 10% per dependent child (minimum 2 children / 1 child and a person with disabilities);

  • 20% for people with disabilities;

  • 20% for severely disabled war veterans.

From the 2020 tax year onwards, only landlords can apply for reductions for tenants.

If the application is accepted both you and your landlord will receive a written confirmation.The granted reduction will be deducted from the owner's property tax. You can then deduct this amount from the rent, notwithstanding any agreement to the contrary.

Am I entitled to a reduction in the case of shared custody?
Yes. Since 2018 the reduction can be granted to both parents who live in Brussels according to the shared custody allocation key. For example, if you have 50% custody of your children you will receive a 5% discount per child (50% of 10%).
Please note: you must submit your application before 31 March of the tax year.

I rent my property through a social letting agency (SLA). What steps should I take?
If your property is rented out by an SLA, you are still entitled to the reduced rate as was the case for the SPF/FOD FIN.

Moreover, the regional tax rate has been reduced from 0.8% to 0%. The property tax on property rented through an “AIS” is therefore 0 EUR.

Have you received a tax bill with an amount to pay? Please contact our administration.

Am I entitled to a reduction for unproductive property?
No. Since 2017, unoccupied and unproductive properties are also subject to property tax.

What are the premiums included in the tax bill?

  • BE HOME premium: 131 EUR in 2020

The increase in the property tax is offset by the BE HOME premium for all Brussels residents who live in their property and pay the property tax. From now on, this premium is automatically deducted from the calculation of your property tax. You will find it in your tax bill.

  • Since 2018, certain communal premiums can be included in your property tax. In 2020, a communal premium will be granted if you live in Ixelles (45 EUR), Evere (105 EUR), Jette (35  EUR) or Schaerbeek (increased from 35 to 70 EUR).

How do I receive my communal premium?
The granting of the BE HOME premium automatically entitles you to the communal premium. As with the BE HOME premium this premium is deducted directly from the calculation of your property tax. If, when you receive your tax bill, the premiums are not listed, you can request them by completing the form on MyTax.

What is the deadline to submit a request for a reduction or exemption?
You can apply for a reduction or exemption up to 193 days from the date of sending of the tax bill.

How do I know if my request is being processed?
If your request for a reduction or exemption has been approved, Brussels Fiscality will send you a new tax bill. This will take into account the correction of your amount to be paid. If your request has been refused you will receive a letter stating the reasons for the refusal. You can always check the status of your request on MyTax.

My tax bill

My tax bill

Which properties are included in my tax bill?
You can see your property tax by clicking here.

I have received several tax bills. Is this normal?
Yes. For each cadastral subdivision, and for each set of taxpayers, you will receive tax bill. You may receive a tax bill in the following cases:

  • You have several properties in different cadastral subdivisions;

  • You are the owner of a property and co-owner of another property in the same cadastral subdivision.

What if I have not received my tax bill?
You can first check if the tax bill is on MyTax.

It’s not there?

  • If you are the only owner of the property concerned, this means that the tax bill has not yet been sent. We send the tax bills over several months;

  • If you are co-owner or undivided co-owner of the property concerned, please note that Brussels Fiscality sends the tax bill to only one taxpayer. For example, in a couple whose members are co-owners of a property at 50%, only one of them will receive the property tax.

Your co-owner/undivided co-owner has not yet received the tax bill? Don't worry, it means that it hasn't been sent yet.

What if my cadastral income is incorrect?
You can submit a complaint by clicking here.

The error is due to a decrease/increase in the cadastral income? Do not forget to provide us with the notification document sent by “Mesures et Evaluations” of the Federal Public Service FINANCE.

The error comes from a sale or purchase of a property? Don't forget to provide us with a copy of the bill of sale or the act of purchase.


I have received a tax bill for a property that I do not/no longer own. What can I do?
3 cases :

  • If you were no longer the owner of the property on 1 January of the year in question, you have to bring a tax appeal by clicking  here. Please attach the act of sale of the property. If your tax appeal is accepted Brussels Fiscality will proceed with the tax rebate. 

  • If you were still the owner of the property on 1 January, you remain the taxpayer of the property tax for the whole year. At the time of the sale of the property, the notary will take into account the number of months remaining and claim the pro rata from the buyer.

  • If you have never owned the property, you can bring a tax appeal by clicking here.  Make sure to attach any document proving that you do not have a real right to the property. If your tax appeal is accepted Brussels Fiscality will proceed with the tax rebate. 

What if my identification data is incorrect? (address, name,...)
You can update your personal data on MyTax, Under "My Profile".

What if I disagree with the amount of the tax?
If you do not agree with the amount of the tax, you can file a motivated complaint by clicking here (indicating 'COMPLAINT' in the subject line) within 193 days from the date of sending the tax bill.

Attention: the filing of a complaint does not suspend the obligation to pay. If your complaint is accepted you will be reimbursed, subject to any debt compensation.

Calculation

Calculation

How is the property tax calculated?

The property tax is calculated based on the indexed cadastral income, according to the situation on 1 January of the financial year.
The total amount is calculated by multiplying the indexed cadastral income by the global tariff.
The overall rate is obtained by adding the regional rate, the agglomeration rate and the “communal” rate.

The index is reviewed annually. In 2020, it is 1.8492.

Calculation example:

Mr Jean has a property located in the 'commune' of Anderlecht with an indexed cadastral income of 1,500 EUR. He is not entitled to any reduction.

How do we calculate his property tax?

  • Additional centimes for the Agglomeration: 989 additional centimes

  • Additional centimes for Anderlecht : 3000 additional centimes

Indexed* cadastral income of the property 1500 EUR
Property tax due to the Region 1500 X 1,25% = 18,75 EUR
Property tax due to the Agglomeration 18,75 X 9,89 = 185,44 EUR
Property tax due to the “commune” 18,75 X 30 = 562,50 EUR
Total 18,75 + 185,44 + 562,50 = 766,69 EUR
*In 2018, the index is 1,7863.

There are different tax rates:

Tax rate Scope of application
1,25 % All properties
0,8 % Properties rented as social housing and owned by the CPASs and 'communes'.
0,8 % Properties that depend on the Société Régionale bruxelloise du Logement or on companies recognised by it.
0,8 % Properties of the Fonds du Logement des Familles de la Région de Bruxelles-Capitale that are rented as part of tenant support actions and for hire-purchase.
0 % Buildings that are (partially) rented by social real estate agencies (AIS) established in the Brussels-Capital Region.
 

What is the current index?

In 2018, the index was 1,7863.

In 2019, the index is 1,8230.

In 2020, the index is 1,8492

How is the amount divided in case of joint ownership or inheritance?

Joint ownership is a legal situation in which several persons exercise rights of the same nature on the same property or on several properties, without their respective shares being materially divided.

With regard to the property tax, joint ownership implies that the members who are part of it are jointly liable for the payment of the property tax for the concerned property.

Bruxelles Fiscalité/Brussel Fiscaliteit can only send the tax bill to one of the members of the joint ownership and ask them to pay the totality of the tax debt. It is then up to the members of the joint ownership to settle between them the distribution of what amount each owes.

What impact do water damage or fire have on on my property tax?

If you think that the cadastral income no longer corresponds to the current value of your property, you can contact:

De Dienst Opmetingen en Waarderingen.

Brussel: meow.service.plan.brux@minfin.fed.be

What is the impact on my property tax in the event of a change in the use of the property?

Any change in the use of the property must be declared to the Administration Mesures et Evaluations within 30 days following the end of the work. This administration will determine a new amount of cadastral income which will serve as a basis for Brussels Fiscality to recalculate the amount of your property tax.

What will be the impact on my calculation if I no longer own property during the fiscal year?

The property tax is calculated according to the official situation on 1 January of the fiscal year. Its amount is due in full and cannot be split according to the length of occupancy.

For more information contact your notary.

What if I disagree?

If you do not agree with the amount of the tax you may file a motivated complaint (indicating 'COMPLAINT' in the subject line) by post, e-mail or fax within 6 months of the third working day following the date on which the tax bill is sent.

Attention: the filing of a complaint does not suspend the obligation to pay. If your complaint is accepted, you will be reimbursed, subject to any debt compensation.

General info

General info

Road taxes are regional taxes. Brussels Fiscality only manage road taxes for residents of the Brussels-Capital Region. For more information about road taxes, contact your region: www.belastingen.vlaanderen.be for Flanders and www.wallonie.be/fiscalite for Wallonia.

The tax on entry into service is payable for each first entry of a motor vehicle into service on the public road by a specific person.

In other words, it also applies to second-hand vehicles registered for the first time by the new owner.

There is, however, one exception. In the case of a transfer between spouses or legal cohabitants, the new owner does not have to pay the tax on entry into service if it has already been paid. For more information, go to the 'changes' section.

The tax on entry into service is applicable to:

  • private cars, cars with different purposes, motorcycles and minibuses registered in Belgium;

  • aircrafts used and registered in Belgium (except drones registered by a company);

  • yachts and pleasure boats over 7.5 m for which a port letter has been issued by the FPS Mobility and Transport or for which such a registration certificate should have been issued (determination of use in Belgian waters).

The annual road tax is a tax on motor vehicles carrying passengers and goods by road that you have to pay every year.

You pay this tax for private cars, car with different purposes and minibuses equipped with an LPG system. The engine is then partially or fully supplied with LPG or other liquid hydrocarbons.

After purchasing your car, you must register it with the Vehicle Registration Service (DIV) of the FPS Mobility and Transport.

To simplify the procedures, it is possible for your insurance broker to register your car online with the WebDIV app.

In general, you do not have to make a declaration for your vehicle. Registration with the (DIV) is sufficient. On the basis of this data, you will automatically receive a tax bill for the road taxes.

However, you have to make a declaration for:

  • trucks + tractors and tractors from 12 tons;

  • buses and coaches;

  • trailers for gliders;

  • dealer plate and test drive vehicle;

  • hearses and tow trucks

You have to make a declaration before using the vehicle on public roads.

You do not have to make a declaration if you store the vehicle for a long period of time or if you use it only on private roads: in this case, it is not taxable.

Attention: The declaration obligation is suspended until 31 August 2020. From 1 Septemeber 2020, you will be able to declare your vehicle, modify or revoke your declaration on our MyTax platform.

You pay the tax on entry into service when you first register a vehicle in your name.

Once the vehicle is registered, you will automatically receive a tax bill from Brussels Fiscality.

For private cars and related vehicles, you pay the annual road tax from the moment you register your vehicle with the Vehicle Registration Service (DIV).

Do you have to declare your vehicle? If yes, you pay the annual road tax from the moment you register your vehicle with Brussels Fiscality. The declaration is made via our digital platform MyTax, before using the vehicle on the public road. You do not have to make a declaration if you store the vehicle for a long period of time or if you use it only on private roads: in this case, the vehicle is not taxable.

After registration at the DIV or after the declaration, Brussels Fiscality will send you a tax bill. From that point on, you will receive a tax bill on the same date each year until you deregister the vehicle or revoke the declaration.

If your LPG installation has already been checked when your vehicle is registered, you pay the additional road tax with the other road taxes of the vehicle. Otherwise, you will have to go to the vehicle inspection within 30 days from the installation. You will then automatically receive a tax bill for the additional road tax.

For the annual road tax, vehicles first put into service more than 25 years ago are considered oldtimers. These are subject to a flat rate corresponding to the minimum taxation of the road tax.

The age of a vehicle is not determined on the basis of its year of construction, but on the basis of the first registration of the vehicle and therefore on the number of years since it was first put into service. Thus, in order for a vehicle to be considered an oldtimer for the 2020 tax year, it must have been first registered more than 25 years ago.

Please note: the age at which a vehicle is considered an oldtimer will be gradually increased from 25 to 30 years in the coming years.

For the 2021 tax year, it must have been registered more than 26 years ago. For the 2022 tax year, it must have been registered more than 27 years ago. For tax year 2023, it must have been registered more than 28 years ago and for tax year 2025, it must have been registered more than 30 years ago.

One of the document is an explanatory annex. You do not have to pay the tax bill with the amount of 301.21 EUR and the tax number 123456789 : it is purely for clarification.

Due to the transfer of the road taxes from the FPS FIN to Brussels Fiscality, the tax bills are sent out later. Our teams are doing their best to ensure that you receive it as quickly as possible.

The overpayment of the paid road tax will be reimbursed to you or will be settled with the road tax for your new European number plate if you have indicated the old Belgian number plate on your Vehicle Registration Service (DIV) registration form.

You must return your old Belgian number plate as soon as possible to the DIV. As long as you keep your old number plate, its number remains registered with the DIV and you will continue to receive a tax bill for the road tax for this plate number.

4. Transfer of the number plate to the name of the spouse, legal cohabitant or one of the owner's children

You can transfer your european model number plate in the name of your spouse, legal cohabitant or one of your children, if your vehicle or another vehicle is registered simultaneously under the number of the number plate. The necessary certificates must be attached to the registration application form.

If you have already paid the tax on entry into service for the same vehicle, the transfer of the vehicle between spouses and legal cohabitant is made without counting a new tax on entry into service.

Attention: in the case of a number plate transfer between parents and children, the tax on entry into service is due.

In the event of the death of the holder, a European model number plate may also be transferred in the name of his surviving spouse, surviving legal cohabitant or one of his children, provided that the deceased holder's vehicle or another vehicle is simultaneously registered under this plate number. This transfer must take place within 4 months of the date of death. The necessary certificates must be attached to the registration application form.

I already was benefiting from temporary unemployment/bridging right before the social distancing measures. Do I still meet the condition regarding total loss of income (or part of it)?

No. Your economic unemployment of at least 15 days (or bridging right) must have been caused by the social distancing measures. Your household/flatshare can still get the premium if another of its members meets this condition.
