IF you have not yet sent your 2013/14 tax return to HM Revenue and Customs, remember not to do it on paper – or you’ll end up with a £100 late-filing penalty.
The October 31 paper-filing deadline for 2013/14 tax returns has now passed.
Even if you have no tax to pay, or you eventually pay your tax on time, a late paper return will still land you with the £100 penalty.
Now it is November, the only way to avoid a penalty is by submitting your tax return online by January 31.
Around 1.9m people in the south east have to file a self-assessment return including 144,000 people in Portsmouth postcode areas.
Help and advice on filing your return is available from online at gov.uk/self-assessment-tax-returns or from the Self Assessment helpline on 0300 200 3310, which is open 8am to 8pm, Monday to Friday, and 8am to 4pm on Saturday.
