The tax office has conceded that strike action on tax deadline day will force them to treat taxpayers facing fines with 'leniency'.
A planned strike by some HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) staff on 31 January - the deadline for online tax returns - could leave insufficient numbers of staff to answer last-minute queries, forcing some people to submit their return after the deadline.
