Northern Ireland taxpayers can now submit their Tax Returns

As from 6th April 2014, self assessment taxpayers in Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK can submit their 2013/14 Self Assessment forms.

If you send in a paper 2013/14 tax return, it must reach HMRC by midnight on 31 October 2014. If you miss this deadline you should submit your return online

If you send in your tax return online it must reach HMRC by midnight on 31 January 2015 in order to avoid a £100 penalty and the later you send in your tax return, the more penalties you're likely to pay.

Taxpayers who are due to make their second payment on account for 2013/14, which is due by 31st July 2014, should also consider filing their tax return before the second payment becomes due. If your tax liability for 2013/14 is lower than the previous tax year then the second payment on account will be reduced.
