Ministers To Learn What "We Are From The Governement And Are Here To Help You" Really Means?

MPs' expenses: ministers not exempt from tax laws and must pay, says taxman
...in an unusual intervention, HMRC told The Daily Telegraph on Tuesday night that MPs were not exempt from tax laws and that tax must be paid on some expenses.
In a statement it said: “It’s a general principle of tax law that accountancy fees incurred in connection with the completion of a personal tax return are not deductible.
“This is because the costs of complying with the law are not an allowable expense against tax. This rule applies across the board.”

It almost sounds as though some one at the Revenue is a teeny bit annoyed at the antics of Ministers, not nice when they get annoyed. I do hope so.


Of course, they could always change the law...
