Green Car Congress
NOVEMBER 14, 2009
The Dutch Cabinet on Friday approved a new road tax bill that would eliminate the current motor vehicle tax and purchase tax and replace them with a charge per kilometer driven, starting in 2012 and increasing through 2018. The average rate for a car is expected to be: Dutch Mileage Tax. Proceeds from the mileage tax will not exceed the combined cost of the older taxes, which can be about 25% of the cost of a new car.
