Your income determines whether you qualify for social housing. The government has determined which income data the housing associations must use when allocating a home.
Determine your income
State the income of all members of your household moving along. You need one of the following 2 documents for this:
- An income statement from the previous year or, if this is not yet available, the year before. You can download this yourself (the income statement will be in your possession immediately) or request it via the Tax Information Line on telephone number (you will receive the income statement within five working days). If you cannot download an income statement yourself, we advise you to request the most recent statement via the Tax Information Line. Here you will find more information about applying for an income statement through the tax authorities. Make sure that you have an income statement for all adults who are moving along. Copy the amount stated on this.
There is a recent final or provisional income tax assessment from the previous year or, if not yet available, the year before. Copy the amount stated under aggregate income.
Based on the data you enter, it is calculated what your expected income for this year is (your income is indexed). You will see this indexed income in your registration details. The corporation checks the income you have stated on the basis of the above documents when allocating a home. Always include the income statement with the housing offer, even if there is no amount on it. You can choose the small business taxes also.
No income statement or income tax assessment?
If there is no amount on your income statement and you do not have an income tax assessment, you calculate your expected income for this year yourself. In that case, use your latest salary slip or benefit statement to state your expected income in your registration.
Your income has fallen or increased sharply
Have you started working less, started a new job or retired? A significant change in your income means that you may state your expected income for this year instead of the previous year. This is only important to you if you want to respond to a home with a lower or higher rent than what you can respond to base on your income from the previous year. Calculate your projected income for this year using your latest pay slips or benefit breakdown.
Upon allocation, the corporation will ask you to substantiate the change in your income with three recent salary slips or benefit specifications. The corporation may also request you to provide a statement about your assets.
