An impressive 2 million people have filed tax returns electronically this
year, HM Revenue & Customs said this morning.
The numbers mean an increase of 400,000 on last year’s figure, with the final
day for filing going according to plan.
‘It all worked fine,’ a spokesman said. There had been concerns that the
Revenue’s computer system could not process the huge number of returns and might
crash under the strain.
It will be several weeks before full figures are collated on how many people
have filed late, the spokesman added.
