I’m here as a result of trying to get through to a human after ‘phoning the helpline (closed until 4/9/23) and 0300 200 3600. I can’t complete my self assessment for 2022-2023 tax year online because it says that it has already been filed. The date given was 30/5/23, but it wasn’t done by me. I need to reclaim over £400 in overpaid tax. I used the link, ‘request a payment’, to reclaim it but was informed that there was nothing to reclaim. Whilst there I noticed that there was unpaid tax of about £160 for tax year ending 2022. I can only think this has occurred through an error you made demanding a penalty for not filing my 2020 tax return that I didn’t have to do. I thought that had been resolved by a previous ‘phone call. If my assumption is correct I’ll be paying compound interest on a fictitious penalty. As there is no way of contacting you until 4/9/23 what am I supposed to do to sort this mess? Also is it possible to fill in a paper copy of the tax return?
