Almost 1 in a 1,000,000

That is about the likelyhood of being prosecuted for tax evasion in the UK. The good news is that most people pay their taxes but there will always be some who try to wriggle out of their responsibility. So what happens to them? Richard Murphy at the Tax Research UK  blog has uncovered figures which show an entire 69 people have been prosecuted for tax evasion in the last year. Ummm poor people cheating on benefits are evil scroungers yet rich people avoiding tax aren’t. Shurely shome mishtake. So where are the tax evasion tv ads and lie detectors HMRC?
