Reasonable Excuse - I Was Deducted By Aliens

As the 2nd of February extended deadline approaches, HMRC have tweeted that 445,000 returns were filed online yesterday, there will be those who will miss this deadline.

Some of those who miss it will have a reasonable excuse, whilst others will not.

Therefore I was amused to read in The Telegraph some of the more "unusual" excuses proffered by those who have missed past deadlines:

- the dog swallowed the envelope
- I had it in my back pocket and the wife put my trousers in the wash
- I was just about  to send in the return when I was abducted by aliens.

As "imaginative" as the above may be, I don't think they stand up to rigorous analysis wrt "reasonableness".

Tax does have to be taxing.
