Oops - HMRC might be charging lots of extra tax

In one of those "computer mistakes" ( which are really human error - at best ) for which government is justly famed, could cost about £1000 /yr for those people who don't check in detail.

Just like HMRC's decision not to ask for Tax returns from those earning less than £100k /yr I'm going to guess HMRC does well out of this also.

Its a new tax - a tax on ignorance.

PS I'm guessing I'm not the only one to wonder if a link between Gordon Brown's insane debt fuelled destruction of the country, his need for ready cash to keep fooling the voters before the general election, and this mistake might be linked ....

Yep. And they have just reduced the period in which you can claim back overpayments from prior years, too.

Things must be getting tight at the treasury with all that debt. So who better to rip off than people who work, eh?

A tax on ignorance from an ignorant government - kinda works, don't ya think?
