On a Lighter Note – Some Entertaining Tax Stories

UK Revenue officials recently released some entertaining excuses from taxpayers:

  • One taxpayer claimed their mother-in law was a witch and had cursed them.
  • Some said that hamsters and dogs had eaten the post.
  • A taxpayer was up a mountain and without internet access.
  • Some strange expense claims were received, such as pet food for a Shih Tzu ‘guard dog’ and a meals claim of 250 days of sausages and chips eaten at a cost of £4.50 per day.
