Revenue issues warning to late self assessment filers

HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) is warning taxpayers who have failed to send in their 2010/11 self assessment tax returns that they are at risk of having their goods seized, unless they make the necessary payments.

HMRC is contacting around 300,000 individuals who have amassed late filing penalties of £1,300 for the 2010/11 tax year.

Individuals can still make payments to HMRC, or ask for the penalties to be taken off their income for 2013/14 via PAYE where appropriate.

Taxpayers who believe that they should not have been included in self assessment for 2010/11 can contact HMRC, who will ask a series of questions to determine whether this is the case. Where HMRC agrees, any penalties will be waived.

The warning is the latest in a campaign by HMRC to chase taxpayers who consistently fail to file their tax returns.
