HMRC have requested I submit a self assessment tax return, as in previous years I have met the criteria. For the tax year ended Apr 2022 I did not meet the criteria for needing to submit a self assessment tax return. On the guidance it advises I should inform HMRC using the 'digital assisstant', via my online account or in writing. I cannot find a digital assistant, and my online account only gives me the option to complete the tax return, not to complete a "return not required". Writing a letter seems like a very slow and difficult to trace way of doing this.... I tried calling the HMRC contact number this morning and was on hold for more than 30mins before cutting off. Please help!

Hi Charlotte Fahy,

Once you have gone through the criteria on this tool, there is a link that will take you to an online form to request removal from Self Assessment
Check if you need to send a Self Assessment tax return

Thank you.

Hi, I am not self employed and should not have received a self assessment request, I am currently PAYE working for the NHS. I was self employed about 15 years ago and had a period of unemployment last year. I followed the link posted above but do not have the 2 pieces of paperwork to verify my identity. I will write to ask I be removed from the system, will this be sufficient? Will someone contact me to confirm?

Once we have reviewed your letter we will write back to confirm removal or advise of the position.

Thank you.
