Tax scanners can't recognize new license plates: report
The Tax Authorities' equipment for scanning license plates often don't recognize the new ones. The system is not equipped to recognize plates with the combination two letters, three numbers one letter, according to newspaper AD.
The newspaper based its article on documents of operations controls from 2013. According to AD, nothing has changed since then.
Due to this problem, tax evaders in new cars are more likely to get away with not paying his taxes than people driving older cars. This creates inequality, employees at the Tax Authorities said to the newspaper.
The Tax Authorities use cameras along Dutch roads to pinpoint the locations of tax evaders. That enables them to collect the outstanding money, according to NU.nl
