Angela Rayner cleared by HMRC over claims around ex-council house sale | Politics News

Labour’s Angela Rayner has been cleared by His Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) after claims she failed to pay capital gains tax on the sale of her former home.

The claims emerged earlier this year, alleging that when she sold the ex-council house in Stockport in 2015, her primary residence had actually been at her husband’s nearby address.

Ms Rayner always denied the claims.

Now, Sky News understands HMRC has confirmed she owes no capital gains tax after the sale and that no further action would be taken against her, as first reported by the Guardian newspaper.

It comes after Greater Manchester Police said that Ms Rayner had been cleared of wrongdoing after allegations that she wrongly declared her address on the electoral register.

That investigation was launched after a complaint by Tory MP James Daly.
