People have been able to file a tax return since Wednesday, but logging in to DigiD was not always possible due to the crowds. Earlier today, Logius gradually increased capacity so that more people could log in to DigiD. Since the end of the afternoon, according to the authority, there has been ‘no more queue’. “Anyone who wants to log in can now log in to DigiD.”
On Wednesday, Logius initially did not want to expand the capacity further because there was a risk that DigiD would no longer work at all. “The system has been analyzed and further optimized from Wednesday evening, so that it can now handle a capacity increase.”
‘Three times as much as in 2022’
Earlier today, according to Logius, there were ‘an average of 400,000 authentications per hour’, of which 360,000 via the tax authorities. “This is more than three times as much as in 2022.”
Due to the login problems, it was also more difficult to log in to other organizations that require DigiD, such as health insurers and the UWV benefits agency.
