Dear HM Revenue and Customs,

Thank you for your reply asking for more information.

The area I am interested in is tax and penalties due on self assessment tax returns.

i.e. if a self assessment is not submitted then HMRC usually issues a penalty, the person then disputes the penalty under article 61 of the Magna Carta.

or HMRC demands tax due after submitting a self assessment tax return which is then disputed under article 61 of the Magna Carta.

I believe from the research that I have already done that these taxes / penalties are waived under section 54 Taxes Management Act 1970. I am not looking for any personal information just the number of times that article 61 of the Magna Carta has been used and the tax / penalties have been waived.

If the last 10 years are not possible then please provide as much information as is possible for an many years as possible.

Yours faithfully,

Stuart

Dear HM Revenue and Customs,

Thank you for your reply and for confirming that HMRC [does] hold some of the information [I] have requested.

I understand that the cost of complying with my specific request would exceed the appropriate limit of £600 even if the request is limited to one year.

Please can you give me an idea of how and why this information would take so long to find and how and why it would cost so much the retrieve?

Also please can you give me an idea of how much data could be retrieved within the cost limit of the FOI request?

I would assume that this data is held on a database?

if it is not possible to filter out the data I am looking for, is it possible to export all the data and I will filter out the data myself?

I would like this request to be internally reviewed, I am unhappy with this response that HMRC does have the information that I have requested but I am not able to access any of it. I have no way of verifying if the £600 limit is true or not and it may be that HMRC are trying to stop me from accessing this information. I would assume that HMRC keep very efficient records, that everything is kept within a database and that searching this database for 'Article 61' or 'Magna Carta' would have been a simple and painless process.

Stuart. (You may be interested in my Request)

I made a Request to HMRC in light of their disclosure that HMRC hold "some information" (about Magna Carta) that I spotted in their response to your request.

That Request was refused claiming it would take too long to find the information. I'll put the link and hope it is not removed.

Gadawodd Common Law Jurisdiction anodiad ()

The usual nonsense from HMRC. They seem to p or answering different questions to what you ask or going off on a tangent about statute law when you make it clear that they need to justify their actions in common law.

The problem we have is that people are under the wrong impression that we want to hoard our money to ourselves. What we really want is a society where it isn't corrupt. Where if I pay a tax it is used to truly benefit the poor etc

Take a look at this:

Thank you for posting this,

HMRC should be able to use the details in the letter you provided:

Date 27 July 2015.
Mr Aldar

to see that at least one HMRC penalty has been removed due to Article 61 of the Magna Carta 2015. This should be enough evidence for HMRC to fulfill Mr Darryl J Lee request for information:

https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/m...

I am interested in this information for research purposes, I find it very difficult to believe that HMRC do not have efficient record keeping IT systems to easily be able to retrieve this information.

I'm not sure how much HMRC has spent on IT systems over the last 10 years and this maybe a future FOI request.

I encourage everyone to pursue their requests further.

Dear HM Revenue and Customs,

Please can you give me an update, this request is now 6 weeks (42 days) overdue.

Yours faithfully,

Stuart
