- If you are not living in the Netherlands or
- if you have the US nationality/US greencard plus the 30% ruling is granted to you
then your salary which you receive in the Netherlands is normally only taxed in the Netherlands for the days you are actually working in the Netherlands. For foreign workdays an exemption can be claimed in the Dutch tax return (according to the applicable tax treaty).
Expatax can determine whether you qualify for an exemption of foreign workdays, how the exemption needs to be calculated and claim a deduction for you in your Dutch tax return. We can also prepare a US tax return.
For 2013 we use the travel calendar which you can find below this article. Travel calendars for previous years can be found here.
Be aware that the tax authorities can require additional proof that you actually worked outside the Netherlands. This can for example be a confirmation from your employer that the travel calendar is correct, plane tickets, hotel tickets, a statement in your employment contract that you may also have to work outside the Netherlands, confirmation from the foreign entity of your employer where you worked etc.
