HMRC Strike Action

27 - 01 - 2012

HMRC staff are potentially going on strike on Tuesday 31 January 2012.

Obviously this may have an affect on the filing of income tax self assessment returns as the latest filing date is 31 January 2012.

HMRC has indicated that it will not give taxpayers more time to file their self-assessment tax returns online despite the planned industrial action by some tax staff on the 31 January 2012 deadline.
However, HMRC have said that any taxpayer unable to get answers to last minute queries about their tax returns due to the industrial action and as a result do not file their return by the deadline may be able to avoid a £100 penalty by claiming a “reasonable” excuse.
Foremans LLP advise that you file your self assessment tax return for 2011 as soon as possible. Do not rely on an exception being made available.
