The tax amendment issues were discussed here at length when the Tier 1 General ILR were being refused. Data shows that many of the people involved had huge tax discrepancies. Accountant error as an explanation was also largely dismissed when these cases went to the tribunal. The success rate seems to be around 50%. If the errors were genuine and discrepancies were marginal, you have a case otherwise you will face difficulty.
More: ... 5-refusals
Tax issues could affect ILR under all the routes
