A further 450,000 people will be trapped in the government's tax chaos, HM Revenue and Customs admitted yesterday.
Letters will be sent out over the next three months claiming that they paid too little tax, and owe an average of £400 each. The total amount owed is £180m, the Daily Mail reports.
In a move which will exasperate taxpayers, they are being asked to pay bills dating back four years for the 2007/08 tax year, something which they had no idea that they owed.
The new victims come on top of around six million taxpayers who were caught up in HMRC's tax chaos, which was first revealed in September.
Jobs market 'on road to recovery' - papers
The UK jobs market is "on the road to recovery", with a strong rise in demand for staff, a study by KPMG suggests.
The survey of recruitment consultants and employers in December found permanent staff vacancies rising at their fastest level in four months, the BBC reports.
But one of the reports sponsors, KPMG, warns the future of the recovery is uncertain, as the government's austerity measures take effect.
Official data showed 2.5 million people were unemployed last month.
Portugal tries to calm bailout fears despite gloomy forecasts
The Portuguese prime minister has tried to calm fears his country will be the next victim of the eurozone debt crisis, by insisting he will not seek a bailout, the Guardian reports.
José Sócrates' statement comes amid growing concern Portugal will follow Greece and Ireland into seeking financial help from the EU and the International Monetary Fund.
Later Portugal will hold an auction of up to €1.25bn (£1.039bn) of government bonds, and analysts fear it could be forced to pay prohibitively high interest rates.
Sócrates said Portugal had cut its 2010 budget deficit to below its official target of 7.3% of GDP, thanks to higher than expected tax receipts and lower government spending.
But the country received a blow from his own central bank today, which predicted that Portugal's economy will shrink this year.
50 Cent ramps his own stock on Twitter
50 Cent made $10m after suggesting to followers on Twitter they pile into a company he had a 12% stake in, the Guardian reports.
After rapper 50 Cent unveiled a new brand of headphones bearing his name last week, the former drug dealer used Twitter to tell his 3.8m followers to buy stock in the marketing company, a business he partly owns.
H&H Imports has "one of the 15 products this year. If you get in technically I work for you. BIG MONEY," he tweeted. 50 Cent, aka Curtis Jackson, added that the "stock went from 5cent to 10 in one day. You can double your money right now. Just get what you can afford."
His follower s evidently took his advice: 9.24m shares were traded in two days and the value increased tenfold.
