Doing taxes online... help!


(Chrissie Ott) #1

Has anybody been there, done that, and got a t-shirt they could lend me?

I have a total phobia about forms! Especially those of the tax variety. I have 3 to fill in:

2042 K
2042 CK
2047-K

I toddled off to the tax office, just before the cut-off date, and, helped by a very nice man, got them filled in. I enquired about filing online (so I could keep the forms as file copies) and was told they looked exactly the same online. Phew, I thought… that gives me another fortnight to pluck up courage.

Tonight, I decided that I absolutely had to face the fear and get on with it.

Sorted out the registration bit with no problems and then disaster struck: MY forms are not listed online!

I’ll phone the office for advice tomorrow but wondered if anybody else had come a cropper, and how they solved it…

This was my first year for doing taxes online so I was looking for forms with the same reference numbers as the paper ones that arrived through the post.

In the end I called up the helpline number on the website and the operator explained that the K and CK suffixes only referred to paper versions; I just needed the 2042 and 2047. It was, as you said, plain sailing from then on.
