Taking tax owed is one thing those of us who pay our taxes on time should welcome.

Taking disputed tax is a gross infringement of the liberty of the citizen, and erodes the rule of law that we are supposed to be governed by.

As always the devil will be in the detail.

I'm just wondering ...

... where a joint account would stand in law for this?

50/50 I guess

I would imagine they would have to assume half the balance belonged to the taxpayer, and disregard the other half.

Joint accounts

It may depend on where the taxpayers live - Scotland or England & Wales (or elsewhere)
