CIOT Comments on HMRC Initiative
|Category|| 2006 Releases
Fiddle and Fuddle HMRC have this week launched their first TV ad encouraging people to report those who are on the fiddle. The Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT) supports this initiative.
John Cullinane, Deputy President, says: “Evading tax is clearly wrong. Every citizen is obliged to pay the tax which is legally due. The Chartered Institute of Taxation welcomes the new HMRC hotline which will make the reporting of fraud easier.”
The CIOT believes that tax law should be made simpler and clearer, so that everyone understands what tax they have to pay. Instead, the complications of the current system leave many people befuddled and bewildered.
John Cullinane adds: “In this year’s Budget, Wednesday 22 March, the Chancellor has the opportunity to announce a range of initiatives to make tax law easier to comply with, instead of adding yet more volume and complexity to an already over-burdened system.”
