HMRC faces further questions over millions of other open cases

The taxman is working through more than 17 million tax problems in addition
to the six million reveled at the beginning of the week.

This latest batch of problems goes back up to six years and stems, according
to the
Daily
Mail
, from HMRC realising that the liabilities under PAYE did not match the
income received by taxpapyers.

However, it is not clear how serious the 17 million open cases might be or
whether they would give rise to significant tax demands.

On Monday it emerged that up to 1.4 million people could owe the taxman up to
£1,400 in. Around four million others could be due refunds.

Throughout yesterday concern mounted over the errors as HMRC sent out its
first mailshot to 45,000 people informing that there was a problem.
