HMRC seeking power to raid taxpayers’ bank accounts

Another controversial measure is being proposed by the Government to give HMRC the power to recover unpaid tax over £1,000 from taxpayers’ private bank accounts.

It would appear that this proposed new power will extend to joint bank accounts in the tax debtor’s name.
