If you would like to send your tax return for the year ended on 5th April 2009 by paper, you would have to do it by the end of this month.
Very important to remember is that the tax return has to reach HM Revenue & Customs by Saturday 31st October.
If you send your return on paper the HMRC will calculate the tax liability to be paid or owed.
If the paper return arrives after this deadline you will be charged a £100 penalty.
According to HMRC, if you miss the deadline because of the postal strike you would not be liable for paying the £100 penalty as long as you post the return before the 31st October.
If you hand deliver your return on the 2nd of November, no penalty would be due either.
In case you miss the deadline you can always send your return online.
At Taxfile in Tulse Hill we submit all the returns online as it is safer and more secure, tax returns are processed faster, and there are later deadlines to meet.
