Besides tax revenue, other operational areas of the Tax and Customs Administration include:

The Tax and Customs Administration was founded as an organisation in 1805; it falls under the political responsibility of the Minister of Finance. Two State Secretaries within the Ministry of Finance in the Fourth Rutte cabinet work with the Tax and Customs Administration.[1]

In addition to the government tax service, there are many other tax authorities, such as the municipal tax authorities that deal with the collection and collection of local taxes.[2]
