The preliminary calculation
(called voorschotbeschikking toeslagen in Dutch) is a letter that contains information about the amount that you are going to receive for the entire year, or on a monthly basis.
In general, tax authorities are able to send the preliminary calculation in 8 weeks after receiving your request. In addition, you will receive a preliminary calculation for the next year at the end of every year. The final calculation
(called Definitive berekening in Dutch) is the same letter that contains information about the amount that you are going to receive. At the end of the year, tax authorities will receive the final calculation of the medical insurance refund.
The final calculation shows the exact amount of refund paid for the previous year, as well as the correct amount that you had to receive. In case if you never received any refunds, or received less than required, you will see the amount to be paid in the calculation. At the same time, you will see the amount to be paid by you, in case if you received more than you were entitled for. 💡 Useful tip:
- If you didn't receive the Zorgtoeslag, or received the paper with 0 values, you need to contact Belastingdienst or one of our agents.
