If you haven't already submitted your tax return then you need to do so quickly. It was due on the 31st January 2017 and there is a £100 late fee for any submitted after that date. If left too long HMRC will also add interest on to the late submission fee which can be £10 per day. HMRC will also issue a penalty for those who haven't paid off their owed tax bill which was also due in on the 31st January 2017. To swerve this added bill you must pay off all owed tax by the 28th
