An alarming number of people took time out from festivities with family and friends on Christmas day to file their tax self-assessment online

A HM Revenue and Customs spokesman confirmed 620 people from across the UK
filed tax returns on Christmas Day last year, using the department’s online
e-filing system.

The figure includes 396 individuals who completed the self-assessment, with
the remaining 224 being accountants submitting returns on behalf of clients.

433 submmissions were filed using the HMRC software and 187 used third party
software.

On 25 December 2007, 489 self-assessment returns were received. Of these, 99
came from agents and 390 by individuals.

357 were sent using the HMRC software and 132 were generated through third
party software.

The revised HMRC self-assessment deadline for this year is 31 January.
