It's the final day for filing your tax return. You have until midnight tonight to get it in, and still up to 1.5 million people have failed to submit their return yet. HMRC has said that it expects around 600,000 forms on the last day, which leaves just under a million who will be liable for a £100 fine for late filing.

By now you may be resigned to paying a £100 fine at the very least - but there could be a last-minute reprieve on the cards.%VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%
