Dutch Royals to remain tax exempt

February 23, 2023

According to DutchNews.nl,

A motion to make the royal family pay tax will not be carried out because it would require a change in the constitution for which there is not the required majority… King Willem-Alexander, queen Máxima, princess Amalia and princess Beatrix are currently exempt from paying tax, based on article 40 of the constitution. A motion drawn up by political party Denk, which called for the government to put an end to the tax exempt status of the royals, did win majority support against the advice of the prime minister. However, a constitutional change needs a two thirds majority.
