Without any sense of irony whatsoever, HMRC has decided to pay taxpayers compensation for HMRC's lousy and shite performance with taxpayers' money!
What specific shite performance is this intended to compensate?
HMRC's shite Childcare Service website.
CCH Daily reports that individuals affected by the website failures may be able to get a government top-up as a one-off payment for tax-free childcare.
Parents are eligible for these payments if they have been unable to complete an application for tax-free childcare; been unable to access their account; or not received a decision about whether they are eligible without explanation, for more than 20 days.
In order to make a claim individuals must send HMRC their full name, home address, National Insurance number, a description of the issues faced, bank details, and copies of receipts for payments to their childcare provider.
If an individual is eligible for compensation, HMRC will contact them and make a payment directly to their bank account.
HMRC’s Childcare Service compensation form is available here.
There we have it folks, taxpayers' money being used to compensate taxpayers for HMRC's shite performance.
Laughable isn't it?
Tax does have to be taxing.
