How to get a refund from Luxembourg dividend tax?

Luxembourg dividend withholding may be reduced under its double tax treaties. As the most common tax treaty rate on dividend income is equal to Luxembourg’s domestic dividend withholding tax rates, refunds of Luxembourg withholding tax will likely only apply in exceptional situations for certain specific investors (like pension funds) that may be entitled to a full exemption under a double tax treaty. Refunds of Luxembourg dividend withholding tax may be applied for by using form 901bis.

Luxembourg has a statute of limitations of 1 year after the end of the year in which the dividend was received, unless a double tax treaty applies and dictates a different statute of limitations.
