Employment tribunal hears strong claims against tax inspectors

Tax inspectors over-egged business’ tax bills to hit their bonuses, an employment tribunal heard yesterday.

Alun Curtis, who had worked at HMRC since 1979, said that colleagues misrepresented business’ tax affairs, charging them more tax and boosting tax staff’s bonuses, reported the Oxford Mail.

The case is being fought by HMRC. The hearing continues.
