LMonday evening, the municipal council of the City of Brussels gave the green light to a new municipal tax which targets the phenomenon of cohabitation.

In the case of cohabitation, the buildings are divided into large common areas (such as the living room, kitchen, work areas, etc.) and luxurious private rooms, which are then rented out at high prices. From now on, the owners will have to pay a tax of 1,520 euros per room and per year.

The tax does not apply to people who live together and sign a rental contract together, as is the case for students or young people, for example.

Cohabitation involves a separate tenancy agreement and a third party that can offer a range of services (including cleaning, repairs, miscellaneous activities, digital assistance, etc.) to residents. According to mayor Philippe Close (PS), this type of rental has so far escaped any taxation.
