Had a nice suprise on Saturday in the form of a demand from HM Revenue and Customs for £4000 due to an overpayment of tax credits which happened some 6 years ago.
I was aware back in 2003 of the F**K UP they had made, but as they couldn't decide what they had overpaid (about 5 different demands)....unbelievable but true, it was put in to dispute.
So after 6 years they are going to recover the money. Naturally i am pi*s*d off, but why has it taken so long? I am not trying to dodge paying what i owe but as i am no longer married, i am concerned that if my ex wife is not in the position to pay, will they expect me to honour the whole amount?
It really hacks me off, that like the majority of you - I pay my taxes and try to pay my way unlike the scrounging CHAV scumbags in this country that have never worked in their lives and get evertyhing paid for them, and would probably get away with this.
Anyone else had dealings with these INCOMPETENT F*** WITS or can offer advice?
