I deregistered from the Netherlands in February 2014 but haven’t received the M form yet. Is that correct?


I de-registered from the gemeente on 14th February 2015, should I have heard from the tax office by now?

In January I got the annual blue envelope, but as yet I have not done anything with this as I expected it to be succeeded with the M-form, is this correct?


Ok, good that you deregistered. The tax authorities may send you a request for more information about the emigration, but also may not send it. You never know… Don’t worry about it. They have your address.

The M form for 2015 will be sent to you in the annual blue envelope. So you don’t receive it now, but only early 2016. It is not possible to file an M form during the applicable tax year since your situation may change later in the year (you move back to the Netherlands, start working in the Netherlands again etc.). It is also possible that the tax authorities won't send you the M form though and that you have to take action yourself. Expatax doesn't need the form itself to prepare the tax return for you. We prepare our own M forms. 

For now you are invited to file the 2014 tax return. We can arrange that for you.
