Ooops - forgot to file a tax return

That was one deadline that made absolutely no sound as it came and went. Yep. I forgot to file the annual tax return for my overseas properties. I'll put it in the post tomorrow and hope that I do not get slapped with a fine.

Unfortunately, it is not the first time I have been late with this particular return. I missed the deadline by about a month a few years ago and got a standard letter warning me that the revenue authorities took failure to file tax returns very seriously and reminding me of the consequences of failing to file on time.

At least I was not late with paying the tax - that is an automatic 10% penalty.
