Bureaucracy dont you love it

Probably the wrong forum in which to post this but thought it might generate comment.

I have just recieved my Self Assessment Tax Statement for 05/06 and the total amount due is...........


I do wonder how much it has cost the British Taxpayer to send me the bill. I will of course as a law abiding citizen be paying said amount by cheque and second class post.

Made me smile anyway.
Did you ask for time to pay?


People have been sent demands for £0.01 in the past.

But this struck me as a real classic:

A pensioner who lives beside the seaside has been warned by his council that he faces a heavy fine for fly-tipping if he returns windblown sand in his garden back to the beach.


Never underestimate the capacity of mindless & idiotic behaviour from any official
even if its 5p, either way, they still need to action it! There should be a tick box on the form which says if ammount due (to you) is less than a pound, ignore it. with the reciprcal also being taken.
