Payments to tax informants have leaped by 50pc over the past year, figures obtained under a freedom of information request show.
In 2014/15 a record £600,000 was paid to people who had reported suspected tax dodges by calling HM Revenue & Customs’ (HMRC) confidental telephone hotline, with around 100,000 calls made.
A year earlier the amount handed out stood at £402,000.
Do child abuse whistleblowers – NHS whistleblowers – police corruption whistleblowers etc etc get paid?
