Are you a customer of HMRC, or a taxpayer?
Are you fed up with HMRC calling you a customer, or don’t you really mind what they call you? If you wish you were referred to as a taxpayer and not a customer, you can sign a petition on the government’s e-petitions site which calls for honesty on this issue.
There have to be 100,000 signatories to have any chance of a parliamentary debate. If you sign up and get clients or customers, friends and colleagues to do so as well, who knows what the total could be?! At least show them that there are plenty of people fed up with being called customers when they have no choice but to deal with HMRC.
The petition can be accessed at http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/17771
