More than 1,500 people found time to submit their online tax returns on Christmas Day, HM Revenue and Customs has said.
A total of 1,566 people sent in their tax forms as many households were tucking into their turkey or unwrapping presents, marking a one per cent increase on the number of people doing this on December 25 last year.
The busiest filing hour on Christmas Day was just before lunch, from midday to 1pm, when 144 people hit the send button on their completed return.
This followed 17,000 people who gathered their financial information together and sent in an online tax return on Christmas Eve, marking an increase of almost a fifth on the same day in 2012.
Boxing Day saw another 4,493 people send tax returns over the internet, showing a four per cent decline on Boxing Day last year.
Question is have you completed yours?
If you haven’t already filed your tax return, then you have up until the 31 January 2016 to do so ONLINE only. The deadline for sending a paper return has already passed so this cannot be done.
