Self assessment returns at lowest level

The Inland Revenue has revealed it has received the lowest number of 30 September tax returns since self-assessment was introduced.

According to the Revenue just 4.2 million returns have been filed out of the 9.1 million tax returns sent out ? while just 1% of these were returned over the internet.

The figures are disappointing considering the Revenue appointed Mrs Doyle – the tea lady from TV hit show Father Ted – in a bid to boost e-filing.

Returns for 30 September are for taxpayers who wish to have the Revenue calculate their tax liability. All other self assessment returns are due by 31 January 2002.
