English translation:tax base
Explanation:
fronm your other questions, I assume that this also has to do with taxes. a heffing in this sense is a levy or tax (and in my previous answer, I should have translated it as that rather than 'assess(ment)'), and 'grondslag' is 'foundation' or 'basis'. A heffinggrondslag is thus a tax base.

rateable values


Explanation:
Hi,

Usually this reads as follows:
heffingsgrondslag voor gemeentelijke belasting
In other words the "rateable value" of a property used to determine council tax.

Hope this helps!
