The Telegraph reports that HMRC is now taking 20% longer to conclude inquiries into individuals' tax affairs.
HMRC initiates tax inquiries when it believes that an individual has not properly declared their full income or profits. Its local compliance teams took an average of three months to resolve tax inquiries into ordinary taxpayers in 2013-14, up from two and a half months in 2012-13.
The figures were obtained through a freedom of information request by insurance firm PFP.
Tax does have to be taxing.
