If you are one of the millions who have to do a self-assessment tax return, you probably had a reminder to pay up by 31st Jan 2016.
You probably got another e-mail saying sorry, we didn't mean 2016, but should have said 2017.
Yes, that's right, after all those New Years' Eve celebrations, you add another one to the year.
So this highly-tuned government set-up doesn't know what year it is.
How many Whitehall mandarins on a million a year does it take to cock that one up?
Woe betide you miss a penny on your offshore trust fund tax avoidance scheme return - get your hands chopped off. Dozy sods.

I'm not sure why people have to do Tax self assessments. Isn't this the purpose of the tax office?
