Taking Stock: Blessed are the tax collectors

Is tax avoidance sinful? TS muses

MANY THINGS leave us baffled here at TS towers. Accounting standards. Tax. The popularity of the Great British Bake-Off. The list is sizeable.

We can now add HM Revenue & Customs’ decision to organise a VIP service at Westminster Abbey later this month to recognise the department’s work collecting revenue.

Does HMRC deserve recognition? Also, we at TS Towers don’t recall tax collectors receiving the fondest of treatments in the Bible.

Still, if any organisation needs God on its side in its work, HMRC does.

Hat tip to Ken Frost for spotting this story.
