Dutch DPA fines the tax authorities €3.7 million

Apr 12th '22

That was a blacklist on which the Tax and Customs Administration kept records of fraud. With often major consequences for people who were wrongly on the list.


Tax and Customs Administration had no legal basis for processing the personal data on the list. Also, the personal data was often incorrect. As a result, people were wrongly registered as possible fraudsters. Furthermore, the security of the list was not in order.
