Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello and thank you for allowing me to assist you.
There is a ‘behaviour based’ system of penalties for inaccuracies on tax returns.
These range from 0% to 100% of the tax underpaid (or refund over claimed).
0% applies where a taxpayer has taken reasonable care, but later discovers an error and discloses this to HMRC.
100% penalties can apply when a taxpayer deliberately makes a false return, conceals the fact and only accepts the position following a challenge by HMRC.
You have corrected your return so I see no need for additional worries.
It's not silly.
Even if done incorrectly twice.
HMRC did not have to advise you about the mistake, you stepped up and corrected it yourself (with professional help).
You are most welcome.
You corrected the declaration of zero and corrected to show the 26000, That is what is important.A positive 5 star rating is appreciated so I am credited for assisting.
