The Culture of Hostility
Accountancy Age warns of the dangers of a culture of hostility setting root in HMRC, as a result of the pressure to close the "tax gap" (the actual size of which is not precisely known):
"The central focus on closing the gap could create a culture of hostility towards tax payers in a way that would trigger people into taking risks, pushing them towards avoidance or even evasion.
Combined with increased tax rates for the better off, this is a real danger unless HMRC finds a more co-operative approach."
Tax does have to be taxing.
