Government announces help for those in tax reclaim debacle

The UK government has today stepped forward to confirm that those sent tax demands for figures under £300 will have them waived and those owing larger figures will have three years to pay it back in full. This comes after a number of Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrat MPs stepped forward to suggest that those on lower incomes were set to suffer the greatest hardship because of problems with records at HM Revenue and Customs.

This comes on the same day that it was revealed that over 17 million additional tax discrepancies have yet to be addressed which could result in yet more tax demands in the short to medium term. Aside from the fact that the UK government has been starved of billions upon billions of pounds these tax demands come at a time when many people in the UK are literally living from hand to mouth. The UK government has very little in the way of funding to offer additional support but will be forced to offer further assistance if the situation deteriorates further.

This will further strengthen the UK government's demands for a simplification of the UK taxation system, something which the conservative party has been very much in favour of for some time.
