Online Tax Return Deadline Looming As Study Shows Men Are More Likely To Complete On Time

With time running out to file your online self-assessment, it’s been revealed that men, are more likely to complete their tax return on time.

According to a study conducted by HRMC, in the 2014-15 period 235 late tax returns for every 10,000 were submitted by women whilst only 232 for every 10,000 were submitted late by men.

The research also shows that a staggering 833 per 10,000 were submitted late by those aged 18-10, whilst those aged over 65 were far more organised, with only 104 returns per 10,000 being submitted late.

Whilst the East Midlands is the second best for online returns being submitted on time, HMRC are urging people not to leave it to the last minute.

John Burling is a compliance officer in the Midlands said “People younger now are so used to the internet, they’re so used to doing it there and then that they think ‘I’ll tell you what the 31st January is the deadline so I’ll do it on the 31st’ where as the older generation historically always like to get things in, in plenty of time to make sure that they’re never going to miss a deadline.”

“It’s your own responsibility to make sure its correct, it’s your own responsibility to make sure its sent to us on time – filling out  a self-assessment form doesn’t mean you’re creating any more records it just means you’re using the information that you’ve got from your business to fill a tax return out from us. So I think it goes down to good basic record keeping which helps you do your tax return”

If you are submitting your 2015-16 self-assessment return online for the first time, you will need to register for self-assessment online here http://www.gov.uk/register-for-self-assessment and the deadline for returns is 31st January
