Midnight deadline looms for tax returns

A million taxpayers who need to submit a self-assessment tax return must do so by midnight on Saturday.

Those who fail to meet the deadline for online returns risk incurring a £100 fine.

A record 11 million people are required by their tax arrangements to submit a return.

Most now do so online and as that can be done from a computer at home, many leave it until the last moment.

Simon Gompertz reports.

Help on filing a tax return is available from the gov.uk website or from the self-assessment helpline on 0300 200 3310.
