The Inland Revenue’s online self-assessment system has come under attack from Liberal Democrat parliamentary chairman Malcolm Bruce. The former Treasury spokesman complained that the Revenue site is so slow, users are being sent CD-ROMS and that e-filed returns are being printed out and re-entered manually on the Revenue’s own system. Bruce said only 63,300 out of 8.4 million taxpayers subject to self-assessment have so far registered to use the system and the numbers registering monthly appeared to be falling.
