A source from HMRC said that the Prime Minister would be “treated like any other taxpayer” as it seeks “clarification” on whether Mr Johnson derived any benefit in kind from any loans or donations for the refurbishment of No 11 Downing Street.
While the HMRC source made clear no formal investigation had been launched into the Prime Minister’s financial affairs, he added:
“Things like this are declared by UK taxpayers all the time and it is the role of HMRC to clarify with people if these are subject to tax. The Prime Minister is no different to anyone else in this regard.”
The PM is indeed not different wrt tax matters. I would therefore query why HMRC is leaking details about what they are doing wrt his tax affairs, given that HMRC normally states that individual's tax affairs are confidential?
Tax does have to be taxing.
