Nieuwpoort also has to refund taxes on second homes!

Nieuwpoort tweede verblijf

Nieuwpoort loses the battle over taxes on second homes. This tax, which has 15 different rates, infringes the principle of equal treatment. This was the ruling of the Court of First Instance of Brugge after twelve second-homes owners had submitted a petition.

The city of Nieuwpoort does not appeal against the decision.

In July 2017, the court held the same opinion as regards the tax on second homes of De Haan. Koksijde has already been convicted because it imposes a second home tax while its own residents are not subject to additional personal income tax. This is also the case in De Panne and Knokke-Heist.
