27 MPs under HMRC spotlight

Taxman investigating the tax affairs of politicians as expenses storm rolls on

The taxman is sifting through the affairs of 27 MPs as the expenses scandal
tearing through the corridors of power in Westminster continues.

HMRC is not revealing the identities of the MPs involved but the
investigation could cover the avoidance of capital-gains tax when selling second
homes and those who claimed for personal tax advice, according to the
Daily
Telegraph.

MPs have come under the cosh for abusing their privileges at Westminster,
which includes accusations of “flipping” the designation of their primary
residence to avoid paying capital gains tax on the sale.
