Taxation: Self-assessment

Question for Treasury

UIN 61796, tabled on 19 June 2020

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether his Department has plans to extend the deadline of 31 October 2020 for Self Assessment paper tax returns for older people in residential care who are unable to access HMRC services online or complete paperwork without support from family members, which is unavailable as a result of covid-19 social distancing measures.

HMRC have no plans currently to extend the deadline of 31 October 2020 for Self-Assessment paper returns for older people in residential care. However, HMRC will take a sympathetic view where the impact of COVID-19 on a person’s personal circumstances has caused them to miss the filing deadline.
