Tax inspector writes book about his career

O'Sullivan tells his stories from 20 years working for the taxman in the Midlands and Wales

A former tax inspector has written a book about his time investigating tax
avoiders and evaders.

The book, titled The Artful Tax Dodger: It’s your pocket they’re
picking
, has been written by John W O’Sullivan, who spent twenty years
working for HMRC investigating serious tax evasion and fraud throughout the West
Midlands and Central Wales.

Publishers Troubador has described the book as “colloquial, anecdotal and
irreverent in approach with a view to engaging, informing and hopefully
entertaining” and provides “an ironic take… on the inequities of the
legislation, the idiosyncrasies of the administrative arrangements of the
system, and the experiences and feelings of the functionaries who work within it
“.

The book will be published on 6 September and is available in hardback at
£17.99. Further information concerning the author and his writing can be found
