    Hi everyone. I have just had a letter saying that the IR are going to send in the heavies to pick up goods from my house to the amount of 5,114.50 for over payment of WTC and CTC going back 9 years. I have kept all paperword going that far back and I am at a loss as to why they think I owe this to them - immediately. I have tried ringing the helpline but it is unavailable. In 2008 I had the same letter - but for different reasons ie not the same debt - and I tried to contact them and they said I had to fill in a TC846 form - it never arrived. After that I tried ringing and ringing but that number came unavailable. I presumed they had made a mistake and that was that. Until today. I cannot get any help and I am so scared some big bloke is (and in the words on that letter an authorised officer will seize your possessions ......without notice).

    What on earth can I do now. Who can speak to if their phone isnt working? I am certain beyond any doubt at all that I do not owe this money and it is an error on their part. I can prove income, bank statements, expenditure etc till I am blue in the face - but realistically I fear it will be to no avail. David and Goliath before the slingshot.

    Does anyone else have any experience with this? and can you offer me any help or assurances and indeed guide as to what I do now?
