Future of box 3 (tax on deemed income from equity)
From the 1st of January 2017 the Dutch equity tax of the so called box 3 changes. In effect, the tax burden on higher amounts of net wealth will be increased while the tax burden on lower amounts of net wealth will be decreased. The tax free amount will be € 25,000 per person.

Then, on the first € 100,000 of net wealth a deemed return on investment of 2.87% will apply. This percentage is said to be based on the average interest rates of the last five years. For the next € 900,000 the deemed return is 4.6% and for amounts of net wealth above 1,000,000 the deemed return on investment is 5.39%.

This system is advantageous for those who achieve a relatively high return, but at the same time it’s really unfavorable if the actual return is low.
