Myrtle Lloyd, HMRC's Director General for Customer Services, said: 'Filling in a tax return won't have been on many people's to-do lists for Christmas, but please don't leave it until the end of January either. We have videos, guidance and helpsheets to support you – just search 'self assessment' on GOV.UK to find out more.'
