Tax app is launched to furious excitement

28 May 2012

taxbillAre you confused by taxes? If you are, that blessed government of ours have launched a phone app which will apparently help you out. The app will calculate how much tax you pay as well as showing you where the money goes, or if you prefer, shows you exactly how it's being wasted by a bunch of pink-faced berks in cheap suits.

HMRC reckon that over half of taxpayers don't know how much income tax and NI they pay each year, so this app is designed to make the whole thing more 'transparent'.

This new calculator enables you to enter your weekly, monthly or annual earnings and it'll work out exactly how much tax you pay. Just in case you fancy becoming massively depressed at how much of your earnings get swiped, that is.

It can be downloaded at the Apple Store or Google Play or if you like, you can get it from the HMRC website. It's a real treat for masochists!

    Why do we need an app to see the figure everybody gets on their payslip at the end of the month?

    Will it also display the cost of the app per taxpayer? Fucking cretinous spastics!

    I had a look at lunchtime, it was down, so I downloaded the app, it was useless, it's basically less useful than the existing web calculators that have been around for 10 years or so. What I want to see is a tax calculator that asks you how much you spend on petrol, cigarettes, alcohol, eating out, general shopping, fuel, etc and then tells you how much you're being shafted for tax, I'm guessing you can take your basic % and slap another 20% on. Oh and it would be nice if they could remind you that anything you don't squander before your death will be fucked at 40% too.
