Odd ex­cuses

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - East Kent Property - - MONEYLIVING -

A tax re­turn be­ing “en­gulfed in a yacht fire”, and a “dog eat­ing a tax re­turn” are among the most bizarre ex­cuses re­cently seen by the tax­man for cus­tomers not get­ting in their re­turns on time. The dead­line for send­ing 2015-16 self­assess­ment tax re­turns online to HMRC, and pay­ing any tax owed, is Jan­uary 31. Penal­ties for late tax re­turns in­clude an ini­tial £100 fixed penalty, which ap­plies even if there is no tax to pay, or if the tax due is paid on time.
