Preparing your personal income tax return can be a tedious task that leaves you with more questions than answers. Not filling in the respective items or amounts correctly may alter your returns. Each person requires a different approach as financial situations vary. It is easy to overlook deductions and credits to which you are entitled.

PACS assists their clients by accurately completing their tax return forms for current and previously unfiled years.

Save time by avoiding standing in long lines at the Tax Office, Receivers Office and Social Health Insurances (SZV).

Each pay period, wage tax is withheld from your salary which decreases your Net salary (take home amount). At the end of the year when you file your income tax you may receive a refund on the taxes that were withheld from your salary.

Why wait until the end of the year to file your income tax and wait another 2 years before receiving a refund?

You can receive relief immediately. Yes it is possible. If you have tax deductions such as loan/mortgage interest or life insurance premiums you can request a reduction on your wage tax amount.

If too much wage tax is being withheld from your salary, PACS can assist you with a request for reduction in wage tax (Verzoek om vermindering van loonbelasting).
