Hi

 

just some advice please.

 

Owe hmrc 3600

 

this been going on 2 years

 

I sent letter asking why I owe it etc. .

 

.I was overpaid

 

they sent another reminder

 

I wrote asking to pay instalments

 

never heard anything for ages

 

got another letter saying I owe

 

I wrote again and then

another letter sent to me saying I owe 3600.

 

Been debating whether to deal with them or stepchange

 

its been 7 days now

 

another letter fron lcs saying ive ignored them and they MAY take action

and could result in a recommendation to hmrc that they consider enforcemen proceedings.

 

Because they assume im ignoring them.

 

Ive just got new job but only till january

 

Thanks

Hi Fishfood

 

 

I had a problem with HMRC and got the below advice - followed it and everything got sorted out fine.

 

Write to Lcs, send it Recorded Delivery, tell them that the account they are dealing with is in dispute with HMRC. Do not speak to them over the phone.

 

These are the OFT's guidelines on debt collectionicon:-

You could try and visit your local HMRC office, but unless someone takes ownership of the problem, it will not be resolved.

 

The best thing to do is to send them a Formal Letter of Complaint, mark it as such.

 

Explain what's happened, how they have let you down and what you want them to do.

 

Complaints and putting things right - HM Revenue & Custom

 

Copy your complaint to:-

Ms Lin Homer

Chief Executive

HM Revenue & Customs

Yes the other good advice I got was "never pay a DCAicon for a gov't debt - no exceptions"

 

Hope it all goes well for you

pers I'd be totally ignoring the DCA

 

they can DO NOTHING

on a Gov't DEBT

 

and certainly

NEVER EVER PAY THEM

nor

Converse on the phone.

 

they ARE NOT BAILIFFS

and have

 

NO SUCH LEGAL POWERS.

 

deal with HMRC directly as advised

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, the whole DCA industry would collapse overnight.

If you are calling HMRC to ask the reason for the overpaymebt, you need to call the normal tax credit helpline for this information rather than their debt management depts.
