I have been trawling though ARSSE hoping to see an answer to this, no luck. I am in BFG and we are approaching the end of the tax year. I have our house in Winchester rented out for £1200 pcm so I was aiming off for paying a huge wad in tax (less deductable allowances) at the end of the financial year. However, people Ive spoken to in similar circumstances say that they havent had a tax return in previous years and so havent had to pay anything yet. Im sure I am due to pay something on this rental income but it certainly seems unclear reading this site. Do we not receive a tax return automatically or are we supposed to apply for them ? Im tempted to keep what I think I owe on deposit until HMRC contact me & I pay them (hopefully they never will suss it) Your thoughts/experiences welcomed.
