In front of the letter, you will find the tax or BSN (Citizen Service Number); after the letter, you will find the period code and the status code.
This works as follows:
Firstly, the last digit of the year or year with period is displayed, followed by a status code:
The status codes are as follows:
0-5 stand for the first (1) and last (5) provisional assessment
6 stands for the final assessment
7-9 stand for the first (1) and last (3) additional assessment
The time period codes stand for either the month or quarter of the year:
21 – first quarter
24 – second quarter

Examples (0000.00.000 being the fiscal/citizen service number):
