    I have just had a letter saying that mh not taxed, bad boy pay penalty fine of £40 now or £80 later plus back tax of £13.75 i can not remember having a reminder. So went online to pay....NO got to go to PO as it is PHGV. so go to post office and pay for tax but cant pay fine as that has to be done via phone or post. I asked about reminder and she said happans a lot with phgv she thinks they dont send out reminders as it is hgv. Is she right? anyone else had same problem since changing for plg to phg?

    I don't think you can rely on reminders :-(

    Yes.

    I think they cock up on the reminders across the board. No particular class is singled out. I didn't get one this year for one of my cars.

    Don't know what PHG stands for , but I didn't get a reminder for mine.... I went online and it wouldn't let me renew on line either ... no explanation. . other than Go To Post Office ..... I went to post office and they said they didn't know why I couldn't get it online and she went online and did it ... about sixty seconds.

    Sorry about your fine, Steve. :(

    i say never do it on line . use your local post office .
    in fact use it for as much as you can . when its gone and you need it you will wish you had .

    Thought about that but decided against as there are periods when it is SORNed.

    Reminder received for our mh. It's sitting on the coffee table as I debate whether to SORN it or not.
