HMRC are riding a wave of empathy with people in their pursuit of tax evaders, and even in recent years tax avoiders. But it is time they cleaned up their own dishonesty by not insisting on one law for themselves and one for the rest of us.

Almost every week I, as an accountant acting for many clients, find that I have requested a repayment of over-paid taxes (often improperly demanded by HMRC in the first place) and had to re-request an ignored earlier submission, even doing this three or four times, to get them to part with money that is not theirs to hold onto.

Is it poor administation on the part of HMRC? Or have they, or the Government, decided to hold onto every penny of other people's money until it is wrested from them with great difficulty?
