Income-related combination tax credit
When am I entitled to the income-related combination tax credit?
When you are working and you have a child younger than 12 years, you are entitled to the income-related combination tax credit. A requirement is that the child is registered at your address. The Belastingdienst sees the following as ‘your child’ is:
- Own child;
- Foster-child (if raised as your child);
- Adopted child;
- Child from a former relation;
- The child of your fiscal partner.
Besides that, there are some other requirements you should meet. We will discuss those in the following section.
Besides, several conditions must be met to qualify for the income-related combination tax credit. Curious if you are eligible for them? Then read on! We will explain them to you.
- At the first of January, your child must be younger than 12 years;
- Your child is registered for at least 6 months at your address;
- Your income must be higher than €5.153;
- You do not have a fiscal partner (or no longer than 6 months) OR you do have a fiscal partner for longer than 6 months and your income is lower.
For joint custody, there is an exemption on the requirements mentioned before. When you have joint custody, your child can be registered at your ex-partner’s address as well. You are in joint custody if you have arranged to divide the care for your child together.
This tax credit depends on your income. Besides that, it makes a difference if you reached the AOW-age yet or not.
