In keeping with the "phone" theme this week, my thanks to a loyal reader who dropped me a wee note yesterday about the time he spent on the phone trying to get through to HMRC:
"I have just spent one hour and fifteen minutes on the phone to HMRC listening to a voice saying 'we will be with you as soon as possible'.Please let us know if your MP offers you any advice or assistance.
I gave up !
I tried to phone them yesterday I got through, listened to the options for ten minutes and was then told please ring back as we are too busy!
I have just sent an email to my local MP on the matter, I look forward to his reply."
Has anyone had to wait longer than this to get through?
Tax does have to be taxing.
