The UK Inland Revenue this year brought the deadline for paper tax submissions forward by six months, to force more people to submit their returns online.

Just got this from my tax accountant:

"Following on-line submissions of Tax Returns on or before 31st January, it has become apparent Inland Revenue has experienced glitches within the system but seemed not to make the information available fearing a panic amongst those submitting.

Also, the 50% amount required on account for 2008/2009, where applicable, has been incorrectly doubled on online submissions, giving an incorrect amount payable on the 31st January 2009."

It's just as well people aren't financially stressed in these trying times, isn't it?

But, it's OK.

Tracking isn't affected....
