The VVD Parliamentary Party, in its 2019 tax dispute, will propose that the House of Representatives no longer include solar panels in determining the WOZ value of homes.
At the beginning of September, the Arnhem-Leeuwarden Appeal Court's decision reported that municipalities could include solar panels in determining the WOZ value of the home. The value of WOZ's home is based on the value of free house sales or the amount the house will deliver when it is sold. The value depends, inter alia, on the size and position of the house, the type of house and the recent presence of solar panels. In court, solar panels add value to the home. The decision directly brought parliamentary questions to MP MP Lodders and Yesilgöz-Zegerius to State Secretary for Finance Menno Snel. Moreover, at the beginning of October, Lower House rejected the proposal by Alexander Kops (PVV) and Sandra Beckerman (SP) not to include solar panels as part of the WOZ value of homes.
The VVD did not support this move at that time. This makes the upcoming VVD position outstanding. According to RTL News, VVD representative Helma Lodders formally proposes to the House of Representatives not to fix solar panels in determining the WOZ value of the house when processing a tax plan (arranged November 12) at the House of Representatives. Group D66 would support the desire of the VVD. RTL Nieuws talks about the likely majority in the House of Representatives.
The Permanent Finance Committee held consultations with the State Secretary on November 5th. A member of Chamber Lodders stated in this counseling: "If you buy solar panels to reduce your energy bill, it is sour if you will have to pay more taxes, then you will be punished for good behavior. Better: a good initiative – so I would like to ask that the solar panels are moving, so they do not matter when determining the value of your home, the so-called WOZ value used to pay different taxes and fees.
