From 1 September 2021 we will receive you in all our offices again, but by appointment only.

Are you married or legal cohabitant but your tax return doesn’t include your partner?

If you are married or in a legal cohabitation, you must introduce a joint tax return with your partner.

In some cases, it is possible that your partner isn’t (wrongly) mentioned in your tax return.

If you are in this situation, you must take the steps mentioned below (even if you were able to file a joint declaration last year).

Regularise your situation

  • You are residing in Belgium

    You must report your status as married person (or as legal cohabitant) to your commune of residence.

  • You are residing abroad and you are a Belgian citizen

    You must report your status as married person (or as legal cohabitant) to the Belgian consulate or embassy of the country you’re residing in.

  • You do not reside in Belgium and you are not a Belgian citizen
