Does your income vary a lot during a year? And do you make use of the income tax averaging scheme (middelingsregeling)? This arrangement will come to an end.
The averaging scheme allows you to average your income over 3 consecutive years. You pay tax over the average income of those three years combined. This can be to your advantage if the tax on this average is lower than the tax on the 3 separate annual incomes.
If you started using the averaging scheme in 2022, you can continue to use it for the period 2022-2023-2024.
