Revenue goes online to catch Wimbledon tax cheats

Aims to catch out residents renting out property without declaring it to HMRC

HM Revenue & Customs is once again
targeting Wimbledon residents who are
renting their property online to tennis fans.

According to The Guardian, HMRC has developed an online tool which
can match undeclared rentals and link them to tax returns.

The paper also reported that Revenue officers had scanned the local papers
and ads placed in corner shop noticeboards in the run-up to Wimbledon.

HMRC claims the online tool has been very successful in catching online
traders who fail to declare income or to register for VAT and National
Insurance.
