§ Mr. David Atkinson
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what proportion of employed persons make an annual tax return each year.
§ Mr. Ridley
For the year ending 5 April 1981, the figure was about 33 per cent. of employed persons and 151W pensioners within PAYE. This figure does not include cases where returns were issued to employed taxpayers following a major change of circumstances; the number of such cases is not available.
