HMRC and Tax Returns - lighthearted .....

Unashamedly c+p from a local paper :

Here is an example of the importance of accuracy in your tax return.

In response to the question; “Do you have anyone dependent on you?” a man wrote: “2.1 million illegal immigrants, 1.1 million crackheads, 4.4 million unemployable Jeremy Kyle scroungers, 900,000 criminals in over 85 prisons, plus 650 idiots in Parliament, and the whole of the European Commission”.HMRC has returned the Tax Return to a man in Evesham after he apparently answered one of the questions incorrectly.

HMRC stated the response he gave was unacceptable. The man’s response to HMRC was: “Who did I miss out?”

New simpler tax return has only two spaces

1. How much do you earn.

2. Sent it.

However, our taxes are always higher because they spend their time chasing time wasters
