UK armed forces in Afghanistan may face tax penalty

Members of the armed forces serving in Afghanistan could be fined if they fail to submit their tax returns by the January 31st deadline.

There have been calls for them to be given more time, but the tax office says if the paperwork is late, they must impose a £100 fine.

Radio 4's Money Box presenter Paul Lewis has more details.
