Property tax is a regional tax on real estate located in the Walloon region.
Property tax is calculated based on cadastral income, as established by the federal administration.
You will receive a payment notice (notice of tax assessment) for withholding tax during the second half of the year.
The amount of property tax owed to the Walloon region is 1.25% of the indexed cadastral income. The provinces and municipalities may establish fees in addition to the property tax.
