Paper shortageSat there wondering if you owe tax or not? Well you may not find out in time. HM Revenue and Customs ran out of paper so over several hundred thousand people haven’t received there reminders. They should send themselves a reminder letter to order enough paper. The excuse is that because of the rise of statements they need to send out this year they forgot to order the right amount of paper…

Fear not though as the deadline draws closer for UK tax payers, officials have given an extra 30 days to pay without charges. They have done this in a way of saying sorry for the mistake they have made. Couldn’t just let us get away with not paying then?

A spokesman stated “We very much regret any inconvenience and will send paper statements to everyone who should have one as soon as possible.”
