Did you miss the 31 January tax return deadline?

Did you miss the 31 January tax return deadline?

Rumour has it that HMRC is granting a last minute concession to certain tax payers which will extend the deadline to 15 February 2014.

Under normal rules, self-assessment tax returns for 2012/13 are due by midnight on 31 January 2014 and a £100 penalty is levied if this deadline is missed.

 We understand that this concession will be available to taxpayers who signed up for the self-assessment online service or requested a replacement user ID or password after midnight on 21 January (we have no idea why 21 January!)

 Please note that this will remove the late filing penalty but not any interest charged if tax is due on 31 January but paid late.
