Tax Avoidance and Tax Evasion

Pensioners, savers, people who buy duty free goods, people who pay cash to avoid VAT in the black economy and people who updated their will correctly are all tax dodgers. Should we penalise and imprison 55 million Britons because people don’t know the difference between legal avoidance and illegal evasion?

  1. Don’t try to confuse the issue. Buying duty free goods to save a few pence or pounds is open and legal. Ordinary people who buy stocks and shares ISAs pay basic rate income tax. Aggressive tax avoidance to save millions as encouraged by PWC is now classed as illegal. I get the impression, perhaps mistakenly that you are in favour of tax dodging on a big scale.
