When you emigrate from the Netherlands during the year there is a resident tax period and a non resident tax period. This is also what needs to be declared in the so called M form. Tax is calculated over the entire year. This is why you can only file the tax return at the end of the year. You can't file a tax return or claim a provisional refund due to emigration during the year. The fact that you won't be living in the Netherlands at that moment will not make a difference. You can still receive the refund.
Expatax can assist you with the M form.
