Last week's Sandtander/HMRC tax BillPay snafu has had another repercussion. It appears that taxpayers who used the system had their tax bill debited more than once from their bank accounts.
HMRC are, apparently, aware of the problem.
A spokesman for HMRC is quoted by the Telegrpah:
“At the end of January, Santander experienced technical problems with their BillPay system resulting in some people making more than one payment. We have already started repaying overpaid tax to those affected and we expect to have this work completed by tomorrow.Please let me know if you were affected.
Santander will cover any bank charges incurred by HMRC customers as a consequence of this incident.”
Tax does have to be taxing.
