  • Self assessment tax bill - will I receive it before payment deadline?

    Submitted tax return on paper in October. Have not received any message about it, including no self assessment tax bill. The website says "You should have received a reply by 22 December 2023 What you can do next If you want an update on your claim or have not received a reply, you can contact HMRC (opens in new tab)." The "contact HMRC" option leads to a chatbot which does not answer the question (it recommended Universal Credit to me when I asked when I would receive my self assessment tax bill). If I do not receive the self assessment tax bill by the payment deadline of 31 Jan 2024, then what should I do? Is there a penalty if I pay as soon as I receive the tax bill but I receive it after 31 January? Or should I pay the amount on my submitted tax return?
