HMRC tweeted this "idiosyncratic" tweet earlier this morning:
"Hi HMRC’s followers, just to let you know HMRC have decided to stop tweeting about tax today and instead all look for inner peace xoxo."No, the Twitter account hadn't been hacked nor had HMRC taken some illicit substance.
It is in fact part of an advertising campaign to encourage people who have yet to file their return online to do so now, and thus find "inner peace".
"The campaign has been developed to touch on the emotions that HMRC found people typically experience after they have filled in their tax return, often described as a real sense of relief or peace of mind – like a weight being lifted from their shoulders. The new ads feature people from different professions experiencing this feeling of post-return well-being."Needless to say if you miss the deadline there will be no "inner peace," merely a £100 late submission fine (at the very least)!
I am curious to hear from loyal readers their feelings on this matter, when you have filed your return (be it online or on paper) what emotion do you feel?
Tax does have to be taxing.
