The Tax Take with Brian Keegan
A Joycean work, the Taxes Consolidation Act is a not-so-handy guide to our complicated tax system
An unusually tall colleague of mine uses out of date editions of the Taxes Acts to raise the height of his computer monitor. The books could have been put to worse use. The Taxes Consolidation Act runs to over 3,000 pages, and that doesn’t include Vat or stamp duties or inheritance tax law. Even with the ultra-thin paper that has to be used in books of that size so that you don’t need a forklift to bring them round, these books are seriously thick.
