Ah yes, as Christmas is almost upon us it also means that tax return time isn't too far way either... are you ready?! 

It's a time of year that seems to extend the stress, so take a moment out of your busy, Christmas craziness to see just what HMRC have encountered as people's excuses for not getting their tax return on time.

So here goes... have you used any of these yourself?!

  1. My tax papers were left in the shed and the rat ate them
  2. I’m not a paperwork orientated person – I always relied on my sister to complete my returns but we have now fallen out
  3. My accountant has been ill
  4. My dog ate my tax return
  5. I will be abroad on deadline day with no internet access so will be unable to file
  6. My laptop broke, so did my washing machine
  7. My niece had moved in – she made the house so untidy I could not find my log in details to complete my return online
  8. My husband ran over my laptop
  9. I had an argument with my wife and went to Italy for 5 years
  10. I had a cold which took a long time to go
