When Is a Request Not a Request?

My thanks to a loyal reader who advised me about an enquiry she received from the Valuation Office Agency VOA (which is "sponsored" by HMRC - what the fark does that mean?) the other day, wrt the rental details of a small studio she rents.

The VOA sent her a VO 6003 form (used the asses the rateable value of a non domestic property), requesting that it be filled in within 56 days.

As it's only a "request" for information, does she have to?

Yes, apparently, for if she misses the 56 day deadline she will be fined £100.

Ker Fucking Ching!

I would suggest that the VOA rewords its covering letter and changes the word "request" to "demand", given that it slaps a fine on people for non compliance!

Tax does have to be taxing.
