    Late tax return

    Hi!
    Long story short: I stupidly, I checked the tax return form. Thought I had 3 months to submit from the date of receipt by mail... But turns out it's 1 month. So I am going to submit it tomorrow (it will be about 3 weeks late, after the date on the letter).

    I'm worried. Anyone been in this situation before? Will I be made to pay a surcharge?

    Thanks.

    They say "may be required to pay a penalty" ... I'd bet if you submit it you'll not see a penalty if you don't have any deductions etc.

    Most likely you'll be fine.

    Include a short handwritten letter explaining your mistake with the return, chances are all will be fine.

    Even though its the simplest tax return form in the world, I'm the laziest fucker in the world and every year it sits in my drawer for ages and I always do it late. I just did mine 2 days ago. I think you'll be fine.

    Most likely yes.....

    Without fail, I have submitted my taxes late every single year for more than a decade. My one, my wife's as well as property.

    I get first notice - I forget/ignore/too busy.
    I get second notice (the red one) - oh, damn, go collect all the stuff, put it together, submit 2 weeks later.

    I've yet to be reprimanded.

    But But But : for business owners, don't ever be late with AR & BR - those guys throw the book at you and it hurts, it hurts a lot.

    I think its about the same time (or just a few days after) as the elapsed time. It usually says "If you have submitted in the last couple of days, ignore this blah blah"...

    You guys don't do it online?

    For a start you get an extra month to complete it, which sounds like some of you need ( ). It's also partially completed, e.g. employer information. It takes a few minutes to do, a couple more to double check, you can save it before submitting, and you get an estimation of the tax due at the end.

    shri and vmlinuz like this.

    Oh seems that I'm not alone anyway Haha.

    Anyone know if you can submit it in person at revenue? (I'll be making a trip to wan chai tomorrow anyway). Or do you need to submit it by envelope to the PObox only ?
