Present Volkswagon with a bill for the unpaid tax

It is important to realise that the Volkswagon emissions scam has not just cheated car owners and damaged the environment.

Volkswagon has also defrauded Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs.

Vehicles with lower emissions pay a lower rate of car tax in the United Kingdom.

Therefore, it is likely that purchasers of Volkswagon cars have been paying car tax at a lower rate than they would have had the emission rates not been rigged.

It would be invideous to chase car owners for the extra tax due.

But it is perfectly reasonable for the British government to present Volkswagon with a bill for the unpaid tax.
