Paying taxes after your retirement

As soon as you start receiving a state pension, you pay less tax.

Even when you are retired, you pay taxes. Most likely less that when you were still working. This is because you are no longer paying for (your) old-age pension.

You still pay tax after you retire. However, you’ll probably pay less than when you were working. This is because you are no longer paying towards the state pension (AOW).

 

You may receive an additional tax assessment from the Tax Authorities
