I need to pay my tax in the Netherlands for the first time. What do I have to do?

I need to pay my tax in NL for the first time.
I also know something about the 30% ruling and I want more information about it.
I worked since October of the previous year in the Netherlands.
You started working in the Netherlands during the previous year. This means that you will be able to claim a refund. Your employer has already withheld wage tax and premiums social security in the months October, November and December. By filing a tax return you can claim part of the withheld amount back.
You can find more information about the 30% ruling in the 30% ruling section:
