At the end of December I SORNd my car and sent in the tax disk for a refund. This week i've insured and now taxed it and in the post office the guy said that it isn't SORN and that it'd be duplicate taxed. Not a problem if I was ok with it.

WTF? Almost 2 months and their databases still aren't updated. How the hell can they reliably issue fines for late or no tax???

Almost wish i'd put this in Howsie's Rant forum now!

Don' want to worry you, however I submitted for a refund and only signed one half of the form by mistake - there is a second bit for declaring SORN. They refunded the tax, then three months later sent me a fine for £40!

I did ask them why if I applied for a refund without signing off the SORN declaration I didn't get a reminder, they advised they don't under those circumstances!

Fined for doing nothing wrong as car has been sat in GTaRt.........

Think of it as a stealth tax........ although it didn't make me feel any happier.

So the next thing will be the SORN will kick in (months too late), i'll go through a camera and get a fine for driving on SORN!

I wonder if Capita manage their backoffice systems :rolleyes:
