Government Declares War On Avoidance
Stephen Timms, Financial Secretary to the Treasury, told parliament the other day:
"This Government will not tolerate tax avoidance or tax evasion in any form, and will act promptly to tackle both of these."
Same old goverment spin of linking avoidance with evasion:
1 Avoidance is legal, taxpayers have every right to arrange their affairs (legally) so as to minimise their payments to the state.
2 What exactly is "avoidance in any form"? The use of ISA's? Tax planning?
Timms has set himself quite a task, I wonder if he is legally, or intellectually, capable of living up to his statement?
I wonder if his fellow MPs, many of whom practice tax avoidance themselves, are in a position to support him?
Tax does have to be taxing.
