COPENHAGEN (Reuters) – Danske Bank said Friday it had identified a new problem within its tax services that could have resulted in up to 6,000 customers in mispayment losses and nearly $ 8 million in tax benefits.

"Our current early estimates suggest that up to 6,000 customers could be affected by one or more of these additional issues and that the overall financial impact for our customers could be as much as DKK 50 million ($ 7.98 million)." said Danske in a statement.

The wrong payouts included "differences in dividend payments, possible misapplied tax benefits and possibly incorrect tax refunds," the lender said.
