The Tax and Customs Administration employs tens of thousands of people labeled as a fraud with their income tax return. According to RTL Nieuws and Trouw, the department started fraud investigations if, for example, there were certain deductions, high healthcare costs or gifts. An investigation was also launched among citizens whose tax advisers were seen by the tax authorities as a ‘facilitator’ of fraud.
The fraud investigations are said to have started in 2012 under the code name ‘project 1043’. According to RTL and Trouw, citizens themselves had to demonstrate their innocence and some had been at odds with the tax authorities for years.
