Re-inspection a year after the application

It is possible that the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration has not yet taken a final decision on your income for the reference year. In that case, the Dutch Legal Aid Board will perform a re-inspection a year after the application. If it then turns out that you were not eligible for legal aid after all, the Dutch Legal Aid Board will reclaim any amounts it has paid to the lawyer from you, with retroactive effect.
