THE NUMBER OF TAX RETURNS submitted on Christmas Day again hit a record high, with a 1% rise on 2012.

In all, HM Revenue & Customs received 1,566 online returns on Christmas, up from 1,548 the year before.

The busiest day over the festive period, however, was Christmas Eve, when 17,000 individuals booted up their computers, got their financial information together and sent an online tax return; a 19% leap on the 14,330 in 2012.

Boxing Day saw a further 4,493 people send their returns - a 4%fall from the 4,685 received last year.

In total, 23,059 online returns were received over the three-day period, a 12% increase on the 2012 total of 20,563.

As far as submissions over New Year are concerned, 26,905 returns filed New Year's eve and 12,938 filed New Year's Day.

The deadline for sending 2012/13 tax returns to HMRC, and paying any tax owed, is 31 January 2014.
