The HM Revenue & Customs who have been accused of "bully boy tactics" for sending high earners letters ask why they are not paying more tax, have responded to the claims.
An HMRC spokeswoman said:
We are issuing 1,000 letters to taxpayers with an income of £150,000 or more who have an effective rate of tax of 22% or less.
If a taxpayer is content that their return is accurate then they do not need to do anything.
This is part of a trial to help individuals identify any mistakes they may have made on their Self Assessment return.
Anyone who needs help is welcome to get in touch with us.
