Petition Action

Suspend Penalties & interest charges on personal tax returns 2019/20 tax year.

Petition Details

We would like the suspension of filing penalties, late payment penalties and interest charge for personal self-assessment tax returns for the tax year 2019/20 only.

Additional Information

Given the present lockdown, it will be difficult for some taxpayers to be able to file their tax returns or get to see their accountants to help them complete this. We also feel that given the extra work that accountants have had to do in terms of furlough, SEISS, Bounce Back and CBILS schemes that this would help ease the pressures on their workloads this January.
