Reminder for workers as tax-return deadline looms

A REMINDER has been issued by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) for Hucknall and Bulwell residents to return their 2010/11 self-assessment tax returns by the end of this month.

Around 110,000 people across the country are eligible to submit the forms and HMRC offers a variety of ways for the self-employed to complete the assessments.

Anyone filling in an online return for the first time will need to register at www.hmrc.gov.uk/online where they will receive a user ID and an activation code, which will follow in the post. Those who miss the Tuesday January 31 deadline also face a £100 fine.
