DPA Suspends Electronic Tax Service
DATA PROTECTION—LATVIAMarch 7, 2011
Latvia's data protection inspectorate has suspended the State Revenue Service's tax return service due to privacy concerns, Baltic Business News reports. The inspectorate ordered a halt to the Electronic Declaration System due to the fact that "users who happen to know another person's identity number can find out that person's name, surname, address and other personal data," the report states. The system will remain suspended until the revenue authority finds a way to control access.
