  • RE: Late Self Assessment penalty but never been self employed.

    I received a letter today for a self assessment late tax return penalty. I've never been self employed! When I first had a letter about this late last year, I completed the survey to see if I needed to complete a tax return, and I didn't! So I then proceeded to submit a form to remove me from self assessment and that was December 30th 2021. Looking in my government gateway I can't see that this was ever processed as the estimated completion date was Jan 2022! HMRC I feel have messed up here, and I've now been in hold for 56 minutes trying to resolve! Can an HMRC admin please advise.
