The 30 November deadline for submitting 2012 personal tax returns is now just over four months away, after which an automatic initial penalty of £100 will be imposed, followed by a continuing penalty of £10 for each day that the return remains outstanding.
Whilst over 70% of individuals have already filed their personal tax return, the Director of Income Tax would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that they may complete their return online and would invite those who have yet to submit their 2012 tax return to now do so using this facility.
Rob Gray, Director of Income Tax, said:
"If individuals submit their return online by 30th November 2013, they will be entered into a free draw (subject to terms and conditions) for a chance to win one of three cash prizes of £2,500, £1,500 or £1,000. Please go to
to register and join over 8,500 individuals (approx 20% of individual taxpayers) who have already completed their return online.
"A "pre-population" facility has also been introduced to benefit taxpayers who file their returns online, which automatically enters some text (such as bank account details) in subsequent returns filed online, thereby avoiding part of the chore of completing a paper tax return and saving the taxpayer time."
"Alternatively, if you decide not to file online, you can download and print a paper return from our website at
. Paper returns are also available to collect from a number of points around the island, which include the Income Tax Office, the Citizen's Advice Bureau, the Guille-Alles Library, States Office in Alderney and the Administration Office in Herm. Details of further collection points can also be found on our website at
