Revenue to apologise over online debacle
Incorrect tax demands sent out
HM Revenue & Customs has said it will apologise for any incorrect tax
demand notices sent out following a mix-up over a discount for filing PAYE forms
The businesses and individuals in questions were taking advantage of a £250
reduction in their 2005-06 tax payment for filing their 2004-05 returns online.
HMRC said incorrect notices had been sent because of errors on employer’s
annual return forms and that anyone disputing the payment should call the number
on the letter they receive.
‘If an error has been made we will apologise immediately and no payment will
have to be made,’ the FT reported a spokesman for the HMRC as saying.
