It’s self-assessment time again and I’ve never read so many people talking about tax.
Have you paid your tax? Have I paid my tax? Have we paid our tax? #tax

After reading this I had a very brief sensation that even paying tax could almost be an enjoyable experience when it’s a big event that lots of people are involved in at the same time- a bit like the World Cup or Valentine’s Day. I’m not sure why HMRC don’t ever focus on making the payment of tax into a virtuous act where we’re all collaborating to boost the treasury to pay for education and hospitals.
OK OK I’m doing it RT @paullewismoney HMRC says self-assessment tax coming in at rate of £16,000 a second. About a million still to file
