HMRC reassures agents on facsimile tax returns. By John Stokdyk
In another move to clarify the HM Revenue and Customs stance on Lord Carter's recommendations for online tax services, HMRC officials reassured agents that they will still be able to print out paper copies of tax returns from preparation programs.
In paragraph 5.13 of Lord Carter's review of HMRC online services, he recommended that HMRC should "stop accepting SA returns on paper substitutes from April 2008". The idea was to force advisers to file their clients' tax returns online by not accepting the forms generated by their tax software programs.
