I’ve worked on something similar for .GOV but it was to subvert the need for a password; users could just enter their user name and have a passcode sent directly to their registered phone. I’m not sure this is what HMRC are doing and it seems like an unnecessary level of security.

But I might be wrong. Twitter me @colmcq.

 

UPDATE: I’ve been fined £100 for not submitting my tax return. Oh do fuck off HMRC.

 

UPDATE 2: HMRC refunded me. GO HMRC!
