The easiest way to file your tax return is to do it online. You can use the HMRC website or other authorized software (such as those provided by your bank) to file your self-assessment tax refund online.
Request That HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).
When you complete your tax return and file it online, you can request that HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) pays you any refund of tax through the PAYE system.
If you have worked out that you are due a tax refund but haven’t already filed your tax return then please contact us as soon as possible so we can advise if there is anything else we need to do for your claim to be successful.
If HMRC has not received a completed self-assessment return from April or October 2018 by 30th June 2019 then they will send out reminder letters asking for this information from individuals who have NOT submitted their own personal self-assessment returns. These reminders are ignored then HMRC may investigate why no return has been submitted by writing again after 12 months has passed since the last request or visiting those people at home who haven’t responded within three years of receiving the initial letter from HMRC – this means they can visit at any time during those three years!
