Nearly one million miss tax return deadline

Nearly one million people in the UK missed the deadline for filing their tax return, but this was an improvement on the previous year.
A total of 11.1 million did hit the deadline of the end of Friday to complete their self-assessment tax forms.
Mostly those with more than one source of income and the self-employed are required to complete returns.
Anyone with a genuine excuse can talk to the tax authority to avoid fines.
Paper returns had an earlier deadline of 31 October, but a record 10.4 million people filled in the forms electronically for which the deadline is 31 January.
Last year, just over one million people missed the 31 January cut-off. Fines can be issued immediately for late filing.
