I shouldn’t feed the troll, but

Tax planning is a critical aspect of personal and business finance, and there are several common mistakes that individuals often make:

1. **Failing to Plan**: Not having a tax plan can lead to missed opportunities for deductions and credits.
2. **Incorrect Information**: Providing incorrect information to tax authorities can lead to miscalculations in taxes.
3. **Miscalculating PAYE**: Errors in calculating Pay As You Earn (PAYE) can result in over or underpayment.
4. **Ignoring Time Limits**: Not being aware of the time limits for claiming a repayment can lead to financial loss.

The consequences of these mistakes can range from financial penalties, overpayment of taxes, to potential legal issues. It's always recommended to seek professional advice when dealing with tax planning.
