Wednesday's Budget announcement by Osborne failed to mention that HMRC will be given powers to raid bank accounts and ISAs of people who are recalcitrant with paying their taxes.
As per P94 of the Budget, quoted by This Is Money:
"This government will introduce legislation to modernise and strengthen HMRC's powers to recover tax and tax credit debts directly from debtors' bank and building society accounts, including funds held in cash Isas.Let us trust that HMRC never makes any mistakes when taking a dip!
Having widely consulted, this measure will be subject to robust safeguards including a county court appeal process and a face-to-face visit to every debtor before they are considered for debt recovery through this measure."
Tax does have to be taxing.
