Eh, no. At least 3 things wrong about your post.
Firstly, the deadline for paper returns is actually Tuesday.
Secondly, the deadline for online returns is the end of May.
Thirdly, the payments aren't due for another couple of months.
The "people" may well protest through non-compliance, but let's wait for the compliance deadlines to pass before inferring anything!
Please expound on my 3 errors as I never mentioned in my OP anything to do with dead lines nor did I state (thirdly) a cut off for payments.
So come on and step up to the plate and explain why compliance is so low and leave the BS on your xbox
The second sentence of your OP starts with the phrase "With the compliance figure so low ..." and the last sentence in your post above asks me to "explain why compliance is so low".
I assume that "compliance" means (i) filing the return on time and/or (ii) making the payment on time. If your references to "compliance" are nothing to do with deadlines for filing the returns or making the payments, then what "compliance" are you talking about?
My point is that strictly, the deadline for "complying" with these deadlines has not yet passed, and we can therefore not yet infer what the compliance rates actually are. You may well ultimately be proven right, but we simply can't tell yet.
On the payments issue, check out the thread title (which I assume you wrote). If 25% have paid already, potentially 2 months ahead of the payment deadline, I would say that's an indication of high compliance rather than low compliance! (I realise that the truth is not that 25% have paid the tax, I assume that it's 25% have submitted their returns)
And I don't have an xbox.
