A quick call to Post Office call centre and Dwayne the Trainee (bless him-his voice has'nt broken yet) tells me that there are a slack handful of these being reported.

Do you pay your tax to the post office?

I know that they do a lot of things that have nothing to do with posting stuff but tax returns?

Mind you I bet they get at least a few results otherwise they wouldn't keep doing it.

I do. I prefer it to sending a cheque in the post. It's instant and you get a receipt.

Fiscal activity? Sounds interesting; are you smuggling rum into Cornwall?

Thanks for the info. You would have to be a bit of a fool to fall for this one, but there are a lot of greedy people out there and some will go for it.
