Excuses For Not Filing Your Tax Return On Time

Recommended Posts

Should be some interesting excuses coming into the offices of HMRC in the next few weeks. Anything to avoid a £100 fine.

An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake, a terrible flood. Locusts.....

for balance just got a £200 fine for an apparent late presentation of funds re my fathers estate.

 

presented a second amount to probate (almost 2 years on from the first tranche) due to the recent completion of a law suit against the insurers of the company who effectively killed him.  money came through a few weeks ago. we presented it immediately. they will not repeal it. not sure how much quicker it could have happened as the case started the week he was diagnosed. 

 

funnily enough there is no excuse from them just an inability to look sensibly at a situation. only argued it as its what he would have wanted. they are not for turning.

If, as they claim, they will use the 'freed up' resources to chase the 'big time' and corporate tax evaders, it's got to be a great idea surely? :yes:

 

Be afraid Mr Bentley, be very afraid.

Hi Ezzie,

Why is your accountant sending your Tax Return by post and why, if it was prepared well in advance, did he wait till the last minute before submitting it?

In this day and age most accountants worth their salt, file personal Tax Returns electronically!

You sure he wasn't fobbing you off? :g:

if I remember my history correctly, the very first supreme court finding in the USA back in the late 1800s concerning the constitutionality of the "irs" was ERRRNT! sorry, unconstitutional.

 

the preceding presidents placed puppets in the court, is my guess.

 

merely a Rothschild hunch.

 

bail out more banks. that'll fix everything.

No late tax returns from me. :no:

 

I am usually due a tax rebate so a few years ago set myself a target of getting that money in my bank account asap.

 

I make sure I keep all my paperwork in good order through the year. This year I submitted my tax return on line on 6th April.

 

It was approved and the rebate credited to my bank account on 15th April. End of. Move on. :)
