Rate surcharge motor vehicle tax
Motor vehicle tax surcharge (opcenten) is a provincial tax imposed on holders of passenger cars and motorcycles living or established in the province in the Netherlands and on those in whose name a registration number has been issued (such as authorized car dealers or lease companies).
The motor vehicle tax surcharge is levied on the rate of the principal sum of the motor vehicle tax. It is a percentage of the principal sum that would be imposed in 1995. The basis for the surcharge is therefore not changed if the rate for the principal is increased or decreased. The size of the principal is dependent on the weight of the vehicle (the heavier, the higher the principal) and the type of fuel (gasoline, diesel, gas or electric).
