HMRC phasing out paper tax returns for 2023/24
As well as moving more and more employer returns online HMRC have announced that they will be phasing out paper self-assessment tax returns and encouraging individuals to file online. Individuals under the age of 70 within self-assessment will no longer receive a paper form through the post or be able to download a form from HMRC’s website.
HMRC have written to almost 135,000 taxpayers to let them know of the changes. From 6 April 2023 anyone whose individual circumstances mean they cannot file online will have the option to request a form by calling HMRC.
The basic paper tax return has 8 pages but HMRC may add extra pages for you to report particular kinds of income or gains, depending upon your own circumstances.
