Tap water tax is collected by the supplier of tap water, who then pays it to the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration (Belastingdienst). This is listed seperately on the water bill. Tap water tax is only levied on the first 300 m³ tap water per year per connection.

- You must declare and pay tap water tax (in Dutch)

- You do not have to pay taxes on water you supply for emergency facilities such as fire hydrants and sprinkler systems.
