Top excuses for missing the tax return deadline

Top excuses for missing the tax return deadline – I thought they were amusing.

Without further ado, here are 2019’s most ridiculous expenses claims and late tax return excuses:

My mother-in-law is a witch and put a curse on me

I’m too short to reach the post box

I was just too busy – my first maid left, my second maid stole from me, and my third maid was very slow to learn

Our junior member of staff registered our client in Self Assessment by mistake because they were not wearing their glasses

My boiler had broken and my fingers were too cold to type

Top failed self-employed expenses claims:

A carpenter claiming £900 for a 55 inch TV and sound bar to help him price his jobs

£40 on extra woolly underwear, for five years

£756 for my pet dog insurance

A music subscription so I can listen to music while I work

A family holiday to Nigeria
