|Issue of 2006/07 SA returns delayed|
According to HMRC “production issues” have caused delays in sending out self-assessment tax returns this year. However, there will be no corresponding extension of filing deadlines.Returns are normally sent out in batches from 6th April onwards. However, this year, it is anticipated that 90% of taxpayers can expect their main SA return (SA100) by 19 April, with the remainder being received by 24 April 2007. 80% of taxpayers scheduled to receive the SA short return (SA200) will have this by the end of April, with the remainder being received by 8 May 2007.
This delay will of course affect those taxpayers who complete and submit paper tax returns as soon as the tax year comes to an end because they are entitled to a refund. There are no delays for those who file online – but this service is not available for short returns in any case.
HMRC have apologised for the delay in issuing returns and will do every thing possible to expedite refunds for customers whose repayments may be a little delayed.
