Another Software Glitch
Oh dear, it seems that there is a glitch in the HMRC online filing system.
The system allows taxpayers ask for any tax owed for 2007-08 to be paid via their new PAYE tax code for 2009-10.
However this option, for tax of up to £2K, ceased to exist from 30 December 2008.
HMRC told the BBC:
"This option should be unavailable but it is presently available."
The glitch does not seem to appear on commercial tax filing software.
How is it that the commercial software providers managed to get it right, but HMRC couldn't?
Tax does have to be taxing.
