VERY TAX­ING BIL

Infusion Magazine - - LOOKING CLOSER -

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.
