Self Assessment when no income ?
Bit of an odd one. I did speak to NDL but they said to ask TaxAid who I've not been able to contact yet.
Anyway a bit of background...
Around 2014-2015 I was self employed, earned little but did the return etc, no problems at all there.
After that I was no longer working due to health, I did tell HMRC I was no longer working etc and I recall I had to do a return the following year, I did tell them again online and had to do another return the following year.
This was no issue as I was at the time on JSA and other benefits, I realise some were taxed so I simply declared it all, again no issues.
I stopped being asked to do a return around this time. Somwhere I may have the email still.
Last email I have from HMRC is 2017 I think, as I recall it said they'd tell me via letter but I don't remember getting one. I would of made a note.
Not been well enough to work since then , there was a period of no income too before moving to UC.
Past couple of years its been Universal Credit and more recently the low rate of PIP, nothing else. These are as I understand it already tax-paid.
I was asked to fill in a new return. I checked it was genuine and it was. I have written to them to ask why but I don't expect to hear back from them before the deadline.
Question here is simply: What do I put on the return (I have not looked at the form for a few years obviously) regarding this only small source of income ? I'd hate to be taxed twice.
For clarity, my health is actually slowly decreasing not improving
HMRC have only asked for the last tax year return as per you'd expect, but I have acres of paper anyway so there is no issue if more is ever needed.
Just confused about what to put on the return for when my only income the past few years has been UC and now low rate PIP.
I am sure others will have been in this situation.
