Dont let your grandmother die

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Another new 'tax' - well done 'Stalin'. Which 'tax' is this? It is the:

    'Do not allow your grandparents of parents to die, otherwise we will charge you 3% interest on the Inheritance Tax you OWE us'.

    My son-in-law's father died in January 2008. The father left a falling down house on about half an acre in Feltham. The old man refused to rectify any faults with the house. The house and land has been 'valued' at £550,000, together with a further £90,000 in cash and belongings.

    My son-in-law has an Inheritance Tax bill of around £130,000. He is a serving policeman with three children, an expensive wife (my daughter) and a mortgage and cannot even think about paying such a sum.

    The property cannot be sold due to many factors, not least the 'Recession' and the Council's absolute refusal to allow any form of development.

    Son-in-law is between the proverbial rock and the hardest of hard places - now this disreputable government see fit to punish him further for allowing his 80 year old father to die!!!
  2. Dead people can't vote, so fcuk'em.
