Tax blunder cuts PS2,000 off No.10 bill.
Byline: LOUISE SASSOON
BLUNDERING Treasury staff undercharged David Cameron and George Osborne on tax bills for their ministerial homes, it has been claimed.
Both the Prime Minister and Chancellor were charged PS2,000 less than they should have been for heating, lighting and maintenance payments, it was reported.
It is thought the mix-up came after contributions were wrongly based on their take-home pay instead of gross ministerial salaries.
The blunder was only discovered six months after the 2014 benefit in kind tax figure for their Downing Street properties had been worked out. The Treasury said the "due tax was paid in full and on time."
It will come as an embarrassment for the Tories, who are trying to claw back some PS34billion in UK unpaid tax.
