Who must pay the tax?
The Property Tax is due by the owner of the property or the holder of a real right with the largest share on January 1 of the tax year.
How is the property tax calculated?
The Property Tax is calculated on the basis of the cadastral income, as of January 1 of the tax year. It applies to all real estate (built and unbuilt properties) located in the Brussels-Capital Region. Payment is made annually.
The regional tax rate is 1.25 % of the indexed cadastral income. Some properties are eligible for a reduced tax rate, for example when they are rented by social real estate agencies or rented as social housing.
What are the reductions?
There are reductions for modest homes, for households with at least two dependent children entitled to child benefit, for people with disabilities and for listed buildings.
