Taketime tofinish taxreturn beforerush


More than 10.7 million customers completed their 2019/20 tax return by January 31 this year, and 795,300 were from Scotland, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has revealed.

The deadline for Monklands residents to complete the 2020/21 self assessment tax return is January 31, 2022.

Customers can complete it at any time up to the deadline but HMRC is encouragin­g them to complete it early to allow for more time to pay their tax bill or set up a payment plan.

Myrtle Lloyd, HMRC’S director general for customer services, told the Advertiser: “Customers can beat the rush and send us their tax returns now.

“They have until the January 31 deadline to pay, which means they have longer to set up a monthly payment plan if they need one.

“Visit GOV.UK and search ‘self assessment’ to find out more informatio­n on how to send your tax returns.”
