Accountingweb reports that the aim is to cut 3,000 fixed-term contract roles in 21 offices. The rational being that more taxpayers are using online services.
Whilst there are no current plans to close the offices, it seems that staff have been told that the sites do not appear to "feature in HMRC's long-term plans".
A cynic might consider that this means that the plans for closing certain sites have yet to be drafted.
Tax does have to be taxing.
