The deadline for filing of self-assessment tax return forms on paper is 31 October, so at the time of writing there is about three weeks left for 2010/11 paper forms to be completed and sent out.
We spoke in an earlier article about HMRC’s horrible new late filing penalties that come into effect this year, and it is therefore more important than ever to ensure that tax return forms are received by HMRC on time.
The good news is that if you are submitting your return online, the deadline is 31 January, so you get an extra three months (and you save the cost of a postage stamp). Regardless of how the return is submitted, payment is not due until 31 January, although you can of course pay sooner.
