Where to Find Your Self-Assessment Tax Return Form Online

Where to Find Your Self-Assessment Tax Return Form Online. Here’s how to find your tax return online, in case you are not sure if you have the right form in front of you or are unsure where you need to find it.

When you’re ready to start completing your tax return, you’ll need to go online and find the form. Here’s how you do that:

1.  Sign into your Personal Tax Account

This is your online HMRC account and you’ll need to enter your user ID, password and access code if you have dual authentication setup.

If you haven’t set up additional security, then I recommend you do that now. It’s extra protection for your online account and all your personal details. You can choose to get a text or email with an access code every time you login in. Although you can choose to tick the box “Remember this access code for 7 days” which will make logging in a bit quicker if you’re in the 7-day window.
