MPs have called for a review of the deadlines for filing tax returns.
At a Public Accounts Committee meeting yesterday, MPs asked David Varney,
chairman of HM Revenue & Customs, to consider changes to deadlines.
Labour MP Helen Goodman pointed to the strange situation whereby taxpayers
were reminded to file just before Christmas, when they were unlikely to take any
immediate notice, before the January 31st final deadline. She called for a
review of the situation.
‘Moving the date will have some benefits, but it will also lead to a new set
of issues,’ Varney said in response.
Varney resisted MP’s questions, however, citing the forthcoming Carter review
as dealing with the issues raised.
