In a clear indication that HMRC and the government is running scared from revealing how truly badly HMRC is performing, the Cabinet Office/HMRC have cancelled publication of this year's full annual HMRC report.
This means that information about HMRC's performance is hidden from public view.
HMRC have instead published a basic financial report and accounts.
The basic report excludes, a.o.:
- Figures showing the number of prosecutions against taxpayers
- The success rate of court actions pursued by HMRC
- A breakdown of details of complaints against HMRC
Needless to say, by hiding crucial information in this manner, HMRC management and the Cabinet Office are doing their best to avoid being held to account for their failures.
This tactic won't work, one way or another the information will leak out and enter the public domain.
So folks, exactly what are they trying to hide?
Tax does have to be taxing.
