Applies to the income year 2017
This item shows your debt in connection with your shares in housing cooperatives and/or jointly owned property. The amount will normally be pre-filled with the amount that has been reported by the housing cooperative/jointly owned property, so you should check that everything is correct.
Does this item concern me?
This item concerns everyone who owns a share in a housing cooperative or jointly owned property.
How do I enter this in my tax return?
The item will normally be pre-filled with the amount for your share of the debt of the housing cooperative/jointly owned property. The amount(s) will be based on information reported by the housing cooperative/jointly owned property, so you should check that everything is correct.
The amounts you should perform the check against will be shown in the annual statement you receive from the housing cooperative/jointly owned property in January.
If the amount shown is wrong, you must change it in the tax return. You should contact the housing cooperative/jointly owned property to ensure that the annual statement is correct.
What if information is missing?
If any information is missing, you must enter the cooperative's/jointly owned property's name, debt, interest on debt and the reason for the change.
Distribution between spouses/spouse-equivalent cohabitants
If expenses are to be split between spouses/registered partners/spouse-equivalent cohabitants, the tax returns of both partners must be altered. You must both edit/add information concerning the housing company/jointly owned property, income, capital and the reason for the change.
Other cohabitants who are not spouse-equivalent must be assessed individually for their share of capital/debt and income/deductions, and they cannot freely allocate income between themselves, for example.
You do not need to send us any documentation concerning this, but you must be able to present it upon request.
