The combined vehicle taxes put 14.2 billion euro in Dutch government coffers last year. Nearly half of this amount, 6.8 billion euro, came from excise duties on petrol and diesel. The purchase tax for new cars and motorcycles contributed 3.5 billion euro, and motor vehicle tax 3.8 billion euro. Revenues from taxes on heavy motor vehicles have been steady for years, at 0.1 billion euro.
Part of the revenues from motor vehicle taxes go to the provinces. They received 1.1 billion euro last year.
The share accounted for by motor vehicle taxes in overall taxes in the Netherlands has been fairly stable in recent years, at 11 percent.
