Self assessment clock ticks down to under 100 days
HMRC has reminded taxpayers that they are now less than 100 days until the deadline for self assessment online return submission.
Self assessment taxpayers have until 31 January 2023 to submit their online return for the 2021/22 tax year.
According to HMRC, more than 66,000 taxpayers beat the clock and filed their tax return on 6 April – the first day of the new tax year.
HMRC is now encouraging others to complete their return as soon as they can so they know what they owe and can budget to make the payment by 31 January 2023. This also means that if a repayment is due, it can be claimed back sooner.
Last year, more than 95% of taxpayers filed online and those who submit their returns early still have until 31 January 2023 to pay.
Speaking on 24 October, Myrtle Lloyd, HMRC's Director General for Customer Services, said:
'With 100 days to go until the online deadline, there's still time to complete your tax return, to budget and look into the range of payment options if you need to.'
