General tax credit - Am I eligible for it?

Question:

 
How can I know if i am eligible to receive a general tax credit and how can I apply?

I work and live here since Octobre 2013 as a customer support professional. My gross salary is of 1618 Euros.

Answer:
 
The general tax credit is automatically included in the payroll administration by your employer. So you don’t have to claim it separately. This only needs to be done for a partner without income.

For 2013 you may be entitled to a tax refund though, see Can I claim a tax refund if I have not lived or worked in the Netherlands the whole year?
