Queen Maxima fulfills all her tax obligations in Argentina, government information service Rijksvoorlichtingsdienst said following reports in Argentine media accusing the Dutch queen of tax evasion.

Argentine investigative website El Cohete a la Luna reported that Queen Maxima never reported improvements to the real estate and infrastructure on the land she and King Willem-Alexander own in Argentina, her country of birth. As a result, Argentina is losing out on tax revenues, according to the site.

But according to the Rijksvoorlichtingsdienst, this is not the case. "Queen Maxima respects the tax laws and regulations in force in Argentina. This is also confirmed to us by the relevant authorities in Argentina", the service told AD after the newspaper asked about the matter.
