General information

MyTax is the electronic platform, set up by the Brussels Regional Public Service Taxation (Brussels Fiscality) to enable you to manage your tax file online.

You can consult various documents relating to your tax file and execute several things (request for reduction, exemption, payment plan, payment of your taxes, lodging a complaint, etc.).
When you use MyTax, Brussels Fiscality may process personal data concerning you.

Warning

This privacy statement applies exclusively to MyTax. For a complete overview of the processing of personal data by Brussels Fiscality, please consult our Data Protection Policy concerning the processing of personal data.

Data Controller and Data Protection Officer

The controller is Brussels Regional Public Service Taxation (Brussels Fiscality), located at Boulevard du Jardin Botanique, 20, 1030 Brussels, represented by its Director General.  
Like any public authority, Brussels Fiscality has a Data Protection Officer, whose main role is to ensure that Brussels Fiscality complies with the privacy legislation. She/He is also the contact person at the Data Protection Authority. To contact her/him, please send an email to the following address: dpo.bf@fisc.brussels.

Securing access to MyTax

Access and connection to MyTax is made by secure means of identification (electronic identity card, itsme® application, etc.), to ensure that only you or your representatives can access and consult your tax file.

Personal data collected when using MyTax and the purposes of this processing

In addition to the data processed by Brussels Fiscality in the context of its legal missions, some data concerning you may be collected when you use MyTax.
These are essentially identification and contact data, which allow Brussels Fiscality to contact you or your representative:

  • email address;
  • telephone number;
  • correspondence address.
These data allow Brussels Fiscality, depending on the choices you have made, to contact you in order to inform you of the progress of your tax file. You can thus be informed by email about the availability of an official document (assessment notice, decision of payment plan, etc.), which can be consulted directly on MyTax.
This contact data may also be used by Brussels Fiscality for any communication with you or your representative, even outside the use of MyTax, within the limits of its other legal powers which would not be supported by MyTax.
By entering this data on MyTax, you acknowledge that you have explicitly given your consent for this data to be used by Brussels Fiscality for the above-mentioned purposes.

Data storage

The data you enter on MyTax are kept by Brussels Fiscality as long as a tax file is open in your name and as long as you have not decided to delete it.

Addressees and transmission to third parties

The data collected by MyTax are exclusively intended for Brussels Fiscality and its staff in order to contact you, in compliance with the purposes set out above.
They are not passed on to third parties.

Your rights and how to exercise them

You have the right to access, at any time, your personal data contained in MyTax. To do so, all you have to do is identify yourself.
You can change your profile and the data you have entered at any time. You can also delete this data and choose to no longer receive notifications about the availability of documents related to your tax file on MyTax.
Please note, however, that by deleting your contact data, you will no longer receive notifications about the availability of certain documents or the follow-up to your requests; you will then have to consult your profile regularly to be notified or will wait until you receive the document concerned by post. Brussels Fiscality will no longer be able to use your contact data collected in MyTax to contact you in the context of its other missions.
 
 

Complaints and appeals

Without prejudice to any other administrative appeal or judicial remedy, if you consider that the processing of your personal data constitutes a breach of the general data protection regulation, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Data Protection Authority. You may also submit a judicial appeal if you consider that your rights have been violated as a result of the processing of personal data in violation of the general data protection regulation.
To lodge a complaint, please contact the Data Protection Authority directly:
 
  • by email, to the following address: contact@apd-gba.be
  • by post, to the following address:

Analytical and performance cookies
These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, and in particular how users use and behave on sites.
These cookies allow the BRPST to compile statistics. For example, by counting visits and traffic sources so that the BRPST can measure and improve the performance of its websites and services. They help it to know which pages are the most and least popular, how visitors navigate its sites and how its services are used.
These cookies are also used to check its performance in the sense that they will also indicate whether error messages are issued, how often and on the basis of which actions.
Cookies do not collect data that identifies visitors. Insofar as all the information collected by these cookies is collected, it remains anonymous. These cookies are only intended to improve the functioning of websites.
The information collected by cookies is aggregated. If you delete these cookies, the BRPST will not know when you visited our site or used its services and will not be able to monitor its performance.        
By using a BRPST website, you agree to receive this type of cookie on your technological device.

Functional cookies
Functional cookies, also known as "functionality cookies", provide improved and customizable features. They facilitate and analyze the operation of websites in order to make their use more pleasant and personalized by allowing the site to remember the choices you have made and by providing you with more precise and personal characteristics.
They allow to:
 

  • customize services by memorizing your preferences (remember your username, language, currency, region where you are, etc.);
  • avoid having to repeat your choices each time you visit the site (remember user changes, such as text size or font size);
  • collect the information provided in the online forms;
  • provide services you have requested (such as watching a video or leaving a comment on a blog);
  • establish statistics (number of unique visitors, etc.);
  • analyze the use of the site and the popularity of our pages.

These cookies are specific to the content management platform (WordPress, Drupal, Liferay, Craft CMS, etc.), which is a form of software that can be described as the "engine" of a site.
The information collected by these cookies is made anonymous and cannot track your browsing activity on other sites. With the exception of the cookie setting your language preference, functional cookies expire when your browser closes. They are therefore deleted from your computer or other technological device when you leave this software.
By using a BRPST website, you agree to receive this type of cookie on your device. If you block these cookies, some or all of these services may not work properly.

Targeting cookies
These cookies collect information about your Internet browsing habits and the use of BRPST services in order to provide you with advertisements that are tailored to you and correspond to your interests. They also limit the number of times you will see an add and help the BRPST evaluate the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns. They are generally installed by advertising networks with the permission of the website operator. They memorize visits to a site and share this information with other companies (advertisers, etc.). Targeting cookies are often linked to the site's features provided by the partner company.
They allow to:

  • avoid that you are repeatedly confronted with the same advertisements;
  • measure the effectiveness of our various communication actions, or of an advertising campaign;
  • personalize advertising on our websites and other communication platforms.

 
Information is collected and shared with third parties to provide audience targeting and optimization solutions for our administrations, publishers and possibly advertisers. No personal data are collected and an individual cannot be identified via the data collected.
Targeting cookies are based on the unique identification of your browser and technological device on the Internet (IP address). By blocking these cookies, adds will continue to appear. On the other hand, you will experience less targeted advertising.

Cookies issued on our sites by third parties
As a result of third-party applications integrated into our sites or services, cookies issued by third parties may be installed in third-party applications integrated into BRPST websites or services, in advertising content (graphics, animations, videos, etc.) broadcast via advertising spaces integrated into BRPST websites or services. For example with the "Share" and "Like" buttons, which come from social networks such as "Facebook", "Twitter", "LinkedIn", "Viadeo", etc.
The social network providing such button is likely to identify you through this button, even if you have not used this button when visiting a BRPST website or its services. This type of application button may allow the social network to track your browsing on a BRPST website or its services, simply because your account on the social network was activated on your technological device (open session) during your browsing on a BRPST website or its services.
The issuance and use of cookies by third parties is subject to the privacy policies of such third parties. Thus, the BRPST has no control over the process used by social networks to collect information relating to your browsing on its websites or services and associated with the personal data at their disposal.
The BRPST invites you to consult the privacy policies of these social networks in order to learn about the purposes of use, particularly advertising, of the browsing information they may collect through these application buttons. These protection policies must allow you to make your choices on these social networks, in particular by setting up your user accounts for each of these networks.
The BRPST reminds you that you can, at any time, simply and free of charge, choose to refuse the registration of cookies on your technological device in such a way that neither the BRPST nor its partners have any information collected by cookies.

How do I manage cookies on my computer, tablet, etc?
