I’ve received a £100 fine for not submitting my tax return, but I don’t remember receiving a form to complete. All my income is taxed under PAYE, so surely I don’t need to complete a tax form, do I?
You should first ring the Self Assessment helpline on 0845 900 0444. Have to hand your NI number and your unique taxpayer reference number (UTR), if you know it. The Tax Officer will confirm whether you need to complete a tax return for the year to 5 April 2011 or not. If you do need to complete a tax return for that year you should do that online, if you submit a paper form now you will receive an even higher penalty. We can help you submit your return online, if one is due.
