Self Assessment taxpayers have less than one week to submit their late tax returns to prevent a £100 penalty, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has urged.


While 10.7 million taxpayers filed their return by 31 January, more than 1.5 million taxpayers missed this deadline and are still to file their tax return. They are accruing interest on any unpaid tax liabilities but still have time to file and pay without incurring penalty charges.

Taxpayers have until 28 February to file their return and prevent a Late Filing Penalty of £100. And those who owe tax have until midnight on 1 April to pay any outstanding tax or set up a payment plan to prevent a 5% Late Payment Penalty.


Jim Harra, HMRC’s Chief Executive, said: “Self Assessment taxpayers have until 28 February to file their tax returns and prevent being charged a £100 late filing penalty.


“Tax returns submitted during February have missed the 31 January Self Assessment deadline and are late. I’m urging anyone who is still to complete their return to not put if off any longer risking penalties and further interest on their outstanding liabilities. Support is available on GOV.UK for anyone worried about how to complete their tax return or how to pay their tax bill.”
