Through the BBC News website I heard about that the Norway Tax Service publishes on their website the annual income of all of their tax payers. I was quite stunned by this as in my opinion this is quite a breach of privacy. The newspapers are also full of lists that compare the incomes of specific groups of public figures. The data is now only online for 3 weeks, but "next year's tax returns will be published online, as per usual, but they will not be removed after three weeks, Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg's centre-left government has signalled." Luckily the newspapers are not publishing my annual income yet :) (and yes, you can find that on the net too).
