Record return for taxpayers
6:30pm Friday 1st February 2013 in News
A RECORD 9.61m people sent their tax return on time this year, HM Revenue and Customs has revealed.
With 10.34m people in Self Assessment in 2011-12, this means that 93 per cent met the return deadlines – October 31 for paper and January 31 for online.
Of the 9.61m on-time tax returns, 7.93m (82.5 per cent) were sent online – a record number. The remaining 1.68m were sent on paper.
Anyone who hasn’t yet sent their 2011-12 tax return to HMRC will have already incurred a £100 late-filing penalty.
