Watchdog report on HMRC – Tax doesn’t have to be threatening…
The BBC Watchdog team reports on HMRC officials threatening to auction people’s possessions in order to settle tax bills.
“Threatening letters, warnings of coming to collect tax debts and even auctioning off personal possessions in order to recover money. And all this from Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs. The government’s finances are in a mess, so maybe a crackdown is justified. But are they going after the wrong people?”
