People urged to shop tax cheats

Written by:

A TV campaign has been launched by HM Revenue and Customs to encourage people to report tax cheats.

The £1.7m advertising campaign aims to cut the number of people that avoid taxes in the UK.

The advert features a plumber boasting about how he is cheating the system and how he is able to get away with bad workmanship, as he doesn’t give receipts, so there is no course of action for you to take if his work is bad.

HMRC Chairman Sir David Varney said: “By far the majority of people are honest taxpayers, but there is a minority out there who refuse to pay their way. People who don’t pay affect us all, and turning a blind eye only reinforces their behaviour.”

The HMRC Direct Taxes Hotline is open seven days a week, 8am to 8pm. The number is: 0800 788 887.
