The new government plans were presented today. For us this will imply:
- Triple (at least!) healthcare expenses and higher own risk
- A bit less income tax on a part of our salaries
- Less tax return as compensation for the tax we pay on our mortgage
- My salary will be frozen (I am in eduction)
- Less pension
Of course there are other consequences, but I can’t really tell what they are going to be.
Crisis and budget cuts have officially hit The Netherlands. Now, everybody has to think about their spending. That could turn out to be a good thing, right?
