VERY TAXING BIL
A 78 year old man from Derbyshire got the shock of his life when the HM Revenue and Customs ordered that he pay a direct debit of £ 950m a month to pay off his bill. The father- of- two told Sky News: “I was a bit shocked when I saw the amount, I’m used to hundreds not billions. “They probably got me mixed up with the Chancellor of the Exchequer or Richard Branson, I don’t know. I could manage the £ 255 if I sold my Peugeot 206 and I’ll have to cut down on my shopping at ASDA.” When Mr Yeomans got through to the Revenue they admitted having made a mistake. “You can get an interview with the Pope easier than getting through to them,” he said. A spokesperson for HMRC said they were very sorry for the error.
