Funding:€505 million in annual tax revenue
Description:To realise a further greening of the tax system, the Dutch Ministry of Finance has increased taxes on energy. Taxes will increase in 2005, 2006 and 2007, generating an average annual revenue of €505 million. Of the total, households are expected to pay €135 million; trade and industries €370 million. However, decreases in income and corporate tax will offset the energy tax increase in terms of individual finances.
