Congratulations to Gordon Brown's beloved HMRC, who have proven themselves yet again to be totally useless.
The other week they sent my Dad a tax form to complete, nothing wrong with that you might say.
Errmmmm...one small fly in their oinkment though.
Dad died in January of this year, and we informed HMRC in writing about it within a fortnight of his death.
This week my Mum received a letter from the good old boys at the HMRC commiserating with her on her loss, and asking for some details re my late father.
Well done lads, it took a mere 14 weeks for the HMRC to acknowledge and process one letter.
No wonder the tax system is falling apart.
Thanks Gordon, this shambles is very much down to you; a fitting legacy.
