Deadline for paper 2009 tax returns

Officially the deadline for submitting your 2008/09 personal tax return is midnight on 31 October 2009 otherwise a £100 penalty will be charged.

However, if the return is in the Taxman’s letter box when their offices open on Monday 2 November, the return will be treated as being filed on time.

The return will be treated as late, but no penalty will be charged, if it is in the letter box when the office opens on 3 November 2009.

As receipts are no longer given for hand delivered returns, we recommend you use recorded delivery so that you have proof that the return was submitted on time.
