BSGW stands for Tax Cooperation Municipalities and Water Boards. BSGW is charged with the task of the municipality of Maastricht to implement water boards and municipal taxes. This cooperation is intended to maximize the social return of cooperation between local authorities in the field of levy and collection of taxes.

Anyone registered in the city of Maastricht must pay taxes to the BSGW. However, you may not always receive a letter and an invoice about it. In that case, your landlord or a skin partner has received the letter. It is important to know that you as a tenant have the obligation to pay, even if your landlord or housemate asks you to do so.
