The deadline for filing your self-assessment tax return is looming. By midnight on 31 January you need to have filled in your form and returned it to HM Revenue & Customs, together with payment for any income tax you owe for the financial year filled.
More than 10 million people are due to file returns by the end of the month, and as of 6 January more than 4 million had not done so.
Even if you don't owe tax you can't escape a fine if you miss the deadline. If your name is down to do a return and you are late, you will automatically be hit with a £100 penalty. There are additional penalties if you leave it for several months which could add up to £1,600.
