Tax Office CN will use a new method to seize vehicles

It still frequently happens that a group of taxpayers refuses to meet their tax and payment obligations. This is why the Belastingdienst CN has decided to use a system
which prevents the use of vehicles, in justice to all individuals and companies who/which do meet their tax and payment obligations.

The instrument which will be used in the de dwanginvordering (enforced recovery procedure) and which will be installed by a bailiff, ensures that the vehicle can no longer be used until payment of the amount due. Needless to say, this instrument will not be used arbitrarily. Before resorting to this instrument, there has been appropriate communication with the taxpayer. Only when the taxpayer chooses not to pay, the Belastingdienst will have no other option than to use this instrument. On Bonaire, in cooperation with the Public Entity, this instrument will also be used for island taxes such as motorrijtuigenbelasting (vehicle tax).

This new instrument is an alternative to the wheel clamp. It is a shield on top of the windscreen, which is attached to the vehicle’s windscreen with industrial suction cups.
This will obstruct the driver’s view of the road. The instrument is fitted with an alarm and a GPS.

Of course it is preferred not to install this instrument on your vehicle. Therefore you should pay your taxes in time. Should you have any doubts about outstanding tax debts, the Belastingdienst can, of course, provide you with a summary. If you should have any questions on this topic, please contact the Belastingdienst CN’s afdeling invordering (collection department), via 715 8585.
