Today is dealine day for anyone who still has not submitted their self-assessment tax return online.
The HMRC expect to issue a £100 penalty to around 900,000 people who will miss the deadline. The UK has a total of 9 million people in the self-assessment system.
With the deadline looming, taxpayers who have waited until the last minute to deal with their returns may now be too late to get the appropriate login information together to file on time.
The deadline for paper-filed tax returns was October 31, 2010.
Whether filed in print or via the web, the closing date for paying any UK tax owed for 2009/2010 is today (January 31).
Meanwhile about 750,000 people will become higher-rate taxpayers when the government change income tax rates.
From April 5, anyone earning over £35,001 will pay 40 per cent income tax. The threshold was previously £37,401.
The main National Insurance rate will raise from 11 to 12 per cent in the new tax year.
The Institute of Fiscal Studies predict the average UK household will be £200 a year worse off under the tax changes.
