Duchess of York in tax probe

The Duchess of York is being investigated by the Inland Revenue over payments made to her staff, it has been reported.

According to today’s Sun newspaper, tax inspectors are reportedly due to quiz her representatives next week over her £100,000-a-year bill for a nanny, chauffeur, secretary and office worker.

It is believed they will try to discover if the Duchess has deducted the correct amount of tax from the wages for forwarding to the Revenue. If there is any shortfall found, she could be fined and forced to pay the sum plus interest.

A team of three inspectors from a special Revenue department dealing with high profile taxpayers has been assigned to conduct the inquiry.

The Duchess will not be involved in any face-to-face questioning initially. But she may be quizzed later.
