    Problem with my tax form ??

    Post by Technician on Sun 08 Apr 2012, 8:32 am

    Hi All,

    Just got a note from the taxman to say my form was not correct:

    Subject: Returned Mail

    Can you believe it?

    They sent my on-line Tax form back to me!

    In response to question # 4, "Do you have
    any
    dependants?", I replied :

    * 1.1 million illegal immigrants,

    * 0.5 million crack heads,
    * 2 million unemployable people,

    * 100,000 criminals in over 30 prisons, and

    * 565 idiots in Parliament.

    Apparently, this was NOT an acceptable answer.

    Who the hell did I miss ?

    Oh I love your sense of humour Technician ! lol!

    Mind you, you might have included many of the 619,000 - and growing - millionaires in Britain that avoid or evade paying tax that raises your tax-bill by about a fifth.

    You could maybe start with the 22 millionaires in Cameron's cabinet !

    You are a bit of a wag yourself Angie ! Very Happy

    Mind you I would love to know how many millionaires and billionaires in Britain do not pay their fair share of the tax that the rest of us are forced to pay via PAYE.

    There was a laughable event on the telly yesterday where Osborne promised that the senior Tory members of the government would publish their tax returns if the rest of the opposition would publish theirs. This all started by a stooshie caused when Boris Johnson and Ken Livingstone got into it over the publishing of their tax returns.

    Mind you I don't think that this kind of openness will show who is hiding what in offshore tax havens.

    Technician... You should be self-employed like I am and then you would know all about how the tax-man comes down on the little people.

    Sometimes I wonder why the hell I do it, as I work a hard third of the week cleaning the windows of shops and company offices just to hand that third of my income to the tax-man or other government offices.
