Non-pc tax return


Tax Return

At this time of year we are engaged in filing our tax returns. It's boring and frustrating in equal degrees and so a little humour goes a long way. The following arrived in our email this morning and caused some mirth.

A man in Evesham has just had his Tax Return rejected by HMRC (Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs) because he apparently answered one of the questions incorrectly. In response to the question, 'Do you have anyone dependant on you?' the man wrote:-

'2.1 million illegal immigrants, 1.1 million crackheads, 4.4 million unemployable Jeremy Kyle scroungers, 90,000 criminals in over 85 prisons, plus 649 self- serving lying ponces in our Parliament and the entire European Commission.'

The HMRC stated that the response he gave was unacceptable.

The man's response back to HMRC was, 'Who did I miss out?'

  2. When I first left school I worked 4.5 years for HMIT (as it was back then) we always got old men telling us they had "Fought a World War for the likes of you", we treated their remarks with the humour they deserved - everyone takes themselves far too seriously now! I told one tax officer a few years ago that they had incorrectly assessed me (and they had) and was told I should regard it a privilege to pay taxes (seriously?) Just get it all done this week then you can relax ...

  3. Hahaha ! the truth is hard for tax people ! But that you call the formular to be filled out "tax return" is in itself black humour ! We never got back any taxes, we always had to pay ! lol ! In French the formalar is called "feuille de contribution" which is more true ! We contribuate !

  6. We are not looking forward to our tax time. We always have a professional do it for us, just because it can be so confusing.
