Inland Revenue Call Centre

Yesterday I spoke to someone at the contact centre who told me I cannot get
a refund of tax overpaid in 1998 as the inland revenue only repay within the
last 3 years, I spoke to a friend who's an accountant he advised that it is
up to 6 years. When I called in to my local tax office they confirmed 6
years.

Has any one else had misinformation from these guys?

Possibly confusing the time limit with VAT?

I've talked to people on the VAT helpline who didn't have a clue about
the surcharge rules although they are on the back of the yellow
surcharge notices.

Sadly those who answer the phones at IR offices are not always the most
switched on.
