    Today marks the deadline for completing a paper-based tax return, but most people now use the online system.

    Nearly 12 million people, primarily those with more than one source of income and the self-employed, are required to complete self-assessment forms.

    Only a small fraction file on paper, while the vast majority need to hit the later online deadline of 31 January.

    Those filing for the first time or who did not file last time are urged by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) not to leave it late. They should allow at least 20 working days before the deadline to register on the system.
