Queen's Speech and present-unwrapping interrupted to file tax returns, figures from the taxman suggest

PERHAPS IT IS THE SPIRIT of the age of austerity, or maybe a desire to avoid stilted conversation with relatives after Christmas lunch, but nearly 850 Britons filed their self-assessment tax returns online during Christmas Day, up sharply from 2009, according to HM Revenue & Customs.

A spokesman for HMRC said 845 taxpayers filed their tax return online on Christmas day, up from 620 in the previous year.

On Boxing Day 2,408 people filed their tax return online.

So far, 3.5 million people have filed their self assessment tax return online ahead of the 31 January deadline.
