Our money - Their incompetence
Recent disclosures by HMRC show the following -
National insurance records contain 120 million mistakes.
Tax credits OVERPAID by £2.27 billion.
Tax credits UNDERPAID by £310 million
"Irrecoverable" bad debts written off - £6.3 billion.
Uncollected debts - £26.1 billion
14 million people to receive tax demands going back 6 years.
Only yesterday we received 9 envelopes containing NINE different tax codes - all for the same person (whose only income is ONE private pension).
And these are the people who DARE to fine taxpayers for making errors ?
