Description topics

Environmental tax revenues
Revenues of taxes that aim to reduce environmentally damaging activities through a price increase. The revenues of these taxes flow into the general budget and are not dedicated to financing environmental measures. Examples of environmental taxes are excise duties on petrol, motor vehicle tax, energy tax and tax on passenger cars and motorcycles.
Mobility tax
Tax levied on mobility and transport could also be considered environmental taxes. Examples are taxes on petrol and other mineral oils, motor vehicle tax and the tax on passenger cars and motorcycles. These taxes do not come under the environmentally based taxes.
Tax on passenger cars and motorcycles
One off tax charged to the first person who registers a vehicle (passenger car, delivery van, motorcycle) at the RDW (Road Traffic Agency).
