Public transport travel statement

If you travel to work on public transport you can, under certain conditions, deduct a fixed sum from your income. You must deduct any travel expense allowance you receive from the University from this fixed sum.

Why a public transport statement?

In order to qualify for the travel deduction you will need a public transport statement or travel statement. A public transport statement is the proof that you have travelled with public transport. 

You do not need to request a public transport statement if you have used an NS annual route season ticket (NS-Jaartrajectkaart), an NS annual season ticket (NW-Jaarkaart) or a public transport annual season ticket (OV-Jaarkaart). The Dutch Tax Administration receives this directly from the NS. 

If you do not receive a public transport declaration because you use separate train tickets, you can ask your HR department for a travel statement. You can use the form below for this purpose.
