HMRC Is Shite

HMRC Is Shite
Dedicated to the taxpayers of Britain, and the employees of Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC), who have to endure the monumental shambles that is HMRC.

Friday, 19 December 2008


The BBC reports that thousands of parents are paying claims management firms to reclaim a now defunct tax-allowance, even though they could do it themselves by contacting HMRC directly.

Back-dated claims for the old Children's Tax Credit must be made by 31 January 2009.

Is it not time that our creaking, massively over complex and confusing tax system was given a thorough overhaul and simplified from top to bottom?

Tax does have to be taxing.

  1. The government often appear completely ignorant of the affairs of many people affected by their overcomplicated legislation.

    Had to give up trying to get max tax free allowance on a pension recently due to absurd demands for information as at 1/4/2006 that many would find impossible to provide unless they had a sufficient pot to pay hundreds to a financial advisor.
