How is the property tax calculated?

The Property Tax is calculated on the basis of the cadastral income, as of January 1 of the tax year. It applies to all real estate (built and unbuilt properties) located in the Brussels-Capital Region. Payment is made annually.

The regional tax rate is 1.25 % of the indexed cadastral income. Some properties are eligible for a reduced tax rate, for example when they are rented by social real estate agencies or rented as social housing.
