2008/09 Self Assessment tax returns
The functionality to file online tax returns for the tax year which just ended on 5 April 2009 is now available. In addition the relevant forms, notes and help sheets have also been published. This is especially relevant for any taxpayers who are due a refund for the 2008-9 tax year and repayments usually follow faster after online filings. The notes and help sheets can be viewed online or downloaded.
It is also now possible to amend tax returns from 2007-8 and later online. This can be done using either commercially available software or HMRC’s own online filing tool. The time limit for amending an earlier year tax return is five years and ten months from the end of the tax year to which the return relates. For example, 31 January 2014 is the last date a 2007-08 tax return can be amended online.
