- You have an extra two weeks, until 13 July.
- It is more user-friendly than completing the paper form. You work on a traditional tax return where you see clearly what you are doing. If you file on paper you have to make a draft first and then copy the codes and numbers on a form that will be scanned.
- Tax-on-web also shows you the codes you completed last year.
- The online form is pre-completed with the information that the tax authorities have received from your employer, the pensions office, banks, etc. You just have to check that the information is the same as they have given you.
- Tax-on-web checks that you haven’t omitted any required information. E.g. if you take a deduction for your mortgage, the program will remind you to name the bank.
- When you make a mistake, the form will point it out but not all mistakes are errors, and it can be frustrating when you can’t move on.
- There is a wizard to help you complete your tax return correctly for mortgages. The wizard isn’t yet finalised; it doesn’t cover mortgages before 2005 or refinanced mortgages.
- You can save interim versions and continue on another day, or from another computer.
- You don’t need to file all the justification documents that you normally file with your return. You can scan them and attach them as a PDF file, or you can keep them at home until the taxman asks for them.
- An online return cannot go missing in the mail and is also processed more quickly and you receive your tax bill sooner.
