The Taxpayers Are Revolting!

The Telegraph reports that there has been a 36pc increase in the number of taxpayers taking HMRC to the High Court. HMRC faced 122 judicial reviews in 2017, up from 90 in the previous calendar year.

For why?

According to the legal firm RPC, HMRC's more aggressive stance when pursuing individuals is to blame.

RPC said the issues at stake in recent reviews against HMRC included it serving information request notices on taxpayers who were not in its jurisdiction. A separate legal battle arose when the taxman failed to follow its own rules on minimum wage payments.

Adam Craggs, of RPC, said that HMRC was under political pressure to increase tax revenues, and this had prompted HMRC’s new approach.
HMRC’s increasing aggression and intransigence mean that judicial reviews are becoming far too common and are all too often the result of simple errors by HMRC and a dogged refusal to correct them.
This substantial increase in Judicial Review challenges would suggest that taxpayers are not prepared to be treated unfairly by HMRC and are willing to challenge its decisions and seek redress from the High Court.”
I can only imagine that this will get worse!

Tax does have to be taxing.

  1. Because the People have gone way beyond having enough. Double Standards, like everything else. No going after the 'big boys', just a slap on the wrist. Does it seem fair to you? It doesn't seem fair to me.
