It seems that HMRC is so desperate to satisfy its political masters, and to ensure that its directors get their bonuses, that it has been trying to fine up to one million innocent people hundreds of pounds each for late tax returns.
The Telegraph reports that HMRC said that 963,000 taxpayers were found to be unnecessarily registered for self-assessment (SA) in the past two years and have now been taken out of the system altogether.
None of the taxpayers had put in SA tax returns for three years yet were still being chase for late filing penalties by HMRC’s inspectors.
The number of people affected represents one in 11 of the UK’s 11 million people who are registered to pay tax in this way every year.
Good work lads, keep it up!
Tax does have to be taxing.
