Personal tax

Self assessment taxpayers who are experiencing difficulties in meeting their 31 January tax bills can ask to delay payment.

Taxpayers are being reminded that they must file their self assessment returns online by 31 January if they wish to avoid a £100 penalty.

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has said that more taxpayers now have the option to meet their bills by direct debit.

Raising the threshold at which people pay income tax could be one way of stimulating the economy, according to a senior MP.

Taxpayers have been warned to be on their guard against a phishing scam that offers the promise of a tax rebate.
