Check via My RBG
You can check in My RBG when the RBG sent you your assessment. You can also print out an extra copy of the assessment in My RBG. You’ll then be able to confirm if the assessment was sent to the correct address.
Processing time of one week
Your payment and the payment recovery letter may have overlapped each other, as processing times are typically 1 week. If you paid the full amount of the assessment in the week prior to receiving the payment recovery letter, you may disregard the letter. You can check My RBG to confirm if the payment has been processed.
Default charges not paid
You may also have received a writ of execution (second overdue payment recovery letter, dwangbevel) because you had not paid the full amount of the first payment recovery letter (aanmaning). This could be the case, for example, if you did not pay the fees associated with the aanmaning.
Digital assessment via MijnOverheid
If you are registered with MijnOverheid, then your assessment has been delivered to the MijnOverheid Inbox digitally. You can use your DigiD to log into www.mijn.overheid.nl. You can read more about the MijnOverheid Inbox and the digital assessment on the MijnOverheid: digital assessment page.
If you feel that you have unjustly been issued an overdue payment recovery letter, you can submit an objection for the fees associated with the letter in My RBG.
If you have already provided authorisation for direct debit withdrawal of your due payment, in most cases you will still be able to pay in instalments. The easiest way to provide authorisation for direct debit is by telephone ((+31)(0)88 291 10 00). Make sure to have your contact number on hand. Private individuals can also arrange this online in My RBG. You will need a DigiD (digital ID) to do so. If you do not yet have a DigiD, you can easily apply for one at www.digid.nl. Automatic direct debit withdrawal is possible only for private individuals and companies with a tax assessment of €5,000 or less. The minimum amount per instalment is €15.00. Therefore, if the total amount due is less than €150.00, the amount will have to be paid in fewer instalments (fewer than 10).
If you provide authorisation for direct debit after receiving a demand for payment letter (aanmaning) or writ of execution (dwangbevel), payment in 10 instalments will no longer be possible. See the examples below to calculate how many instalments you still have left (using the sending date as indicated on your tax assessment).

The RBG sent you an assessment for water board and/or municipal taxes. The amount due was not paid (in full) by the specified due date. In My RBG you can check to confirm when the RBG sent you the assessment and what its due date is. You can also print out an extra copy of the assessment in MijnRBG. To use My RBG, private individuals need a DidiD (digital ID). If you do not yet have a DigiD, you can easily apply for one at www.digid.nl.
You may also have received a second overdue payment recovery letter (dwangbevel) because you had not paid the full amount of the first payment recovery letter (aanmaning). This could be the case, for example, if you did not pay the fees associated with the letter.
If you do not pay a dwangbevel (second overdue payment recovery letter), you will receive a final reminder in the form of a hernieuwd bevel tot betaling (a 2nd writ of execution). The fees for this measure are €16.00. If you do not pay this charge, the enforcement agent may implement an order to garnish your wages or income support benefits, or to seize your bank account, assets or home. All costs associated with these further measures will be charged to you.
The RBG decided to no longer send out reminder letters without associated fees as of 2013, to save costs. This is clearly stated on all assessments we send out since that time, as well as on our website.
In My RBG you can check to confirm which address the aanmaning/dwangbevel applies to. To use My RBG, private individuals need a DidiD (digital ID). If you do not yet have a DigiD, you can easily apply for one at www.digid.nl.
You received a dwangbevel because you did not pay the full amount of the aanmaning. Because of this violation, you will now have to pay the full amount specified in the dwangbevel you have received.
