Dear Julian,

Thank you for your email dated 23 January 2012. You asked for a
breakdown of what your taxes pay for.

HMRC publishes details of revenue collected each year. This can be
found in the Departmental Annual Report and Accounts. The latest
published figures are available for 2010/11 at the link below. I have
also attached a copy to be helpful.

http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/about/annual-repo...

The money collected by HMRC is transferred to HM Treasury where it is
used to meet general Government Expenditure. My understanding is that
it is not possible to look at an individual's contributions and analyse
that across the whole range of expenditure. HM Treasury publishes
Consolidated Funds accounts which set out its income and expenditure.
Below is a link to the 2010/11 accounts. I have also attached a copy to
be helpful.

Is it just me, or does that report say that All that HMRC paid out last year was 40 billion in benefits.....??? What else do they spend the revenue on then?
