Alien sightings no excuse for filing your tax return late

  • Published in World

As Britain's deadline for annual tax returns looms, revenue authorities have warned they will be keeping a sharp lookout for any mention of aliens.

Seeking to encourage taxpayers to file their returns by Jan. 31, Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) gave some examples on Wednesday of excuses for lateness it had received and rejected.

I couldn't file my return on time as my wife has been seeing aliens and won't let me enter the house," was one explanation that did not pass muster.

HMRC officials were equally unimpressed with someone who said their ex-wife had left the tax return upstairs and they couldn't retrieve it because they suffered from vertigo.

Each year we still come across some questionable excuses," said Angela MacDonald, HMRC Director General of Customer Services.

However, help will always be provided for those who have a genuine excuse for not submitting their return on time," she added in a statement.

HMRC also highlighted a few dubious claims for tax-deductible expenses, reminding taxpayers that only legitimate expenses for a job would be accepted.

Expense claims rejected by officials included veterinary fees for a rabbit, birthday drinks at a Glasgow nightclub and 250 days' worth of sausages and chips.

Authors: Ecroaker. com Boosters.

Estranged couple Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne Khan may have been leading separate lives, but have been inseparable over the past few months. Even after their divorce in 2014, the two share a great camaraderie and always take time out of their busy schedule to spend some quality moments with their children Hrehaan and Hridhaan.

Hrithik and Sussanne are often spotted having a gala time during their family gatherings, late night dinner dates or private parties. While everyone in tinsel town is eagerly waiting for them to reunite, their close friend feels if you give Hrithik and Sussanne some time, they will come definitely come together as a couple again.

Hrithik and Sussanne are working it out. They identified the stress areas in their relationship and are doing their best to work their way around them. Give them time — they will come together again," their close friend was quoted as saying by Deccan Chronicle.

Recently, Sussanne wished Hrithik on his 44th birthday on January 10 in the most adorable way and called him the "sunshine" of her life.

Forever and always you stay the sunshine in my life. Happy happiest birthday smile that smile brightest and u always will spread that light. limitless #sacredheart," Sussanne wrote on Instagram.

And not to forget that Sussanne was the first one to come out and stand beside her ex-husband firmly during the turbulent time when the Krrish actor was embroiled in a legal battle with Kangana Ranaut.

While Hrithik and Sussanne have always maintained that there can't be any reconciliation between the two, a member of the Roshan clan has also refuted rumours of their possible reunion.

They are done with one another — to even suggest that they can be a couple again is ridiculous. They've agreed to meet and spend time together for their children's sake whenever they feel like it. Beyond their obligation as parents, both Hrithik and Susanne have their own separate lives," a member of Roshan clan was quoted as saying by Deccan Chronicle.

Well, only Hrithik and Sussanne can tell what's cooking and whether there will be a possible reconciliation. Until then, let's hope the two change their minds and once again become one of the cutest couples in the B-Town.

Authors: Ecroaker. com Boosters.

Actress Madhuri Dixit is all set for her debut Marathi film Bucket List. Her first look from the film, which was revealed on Sunday evening, has gained one of the top spots on today's trending list. The poster features Madhuri in a traditional green sari, a round red bindi and a mangalsutra. And here is the first look of my first Marathi film Bucket List," she wrote, adding the hashtag "Sankranti Surprise. It is a story of every household yet, it has a silver lining. It not only gives you hope and inspiration but also encourages you to live life in the true sense. The most fascinating factor for me to choose it is that it is going to carve a niche in everyone's heart," Madhuri, 50, earlier said.

Here's Madhuri's first look from Bucket List.

Bucket List is Madhuri Dixit's first Marathi project, despite having spent over 30 years in the industry. Marathi cinema is evolving so beautifully and seeing such incredible stories being told makes me beam with pride. I have received a number of scripts over the years, since doing a Marathi film was always something I was open to. But the scripts didn't excite me as this one did. When I read this script, it stood out and with the amazing team behind it, I knew that this is what I wanted to be a part of," she said.

Bucket List is directed by Tejas Prabha Vijay Deoskar and is slated for a summer 2018 release.

Meanwhile, Madhuri Dixit is prepping for Total Dhamaal, which went on floors last week.

'I have always been a tomboy'

Authors: Ecroaker. com Boosters.

Actor Zareen Khan, who will soon be seen performing action stunts in her upcoming film One Day, says she has always been a tomboy.

I have always been a tomboy. I'd love to do action films and that is the reason I took up this role because people have seen a very different side of me. I am playing a police officer in 'One Day'. I have never done any of this. people have never seen me in something like this, they have seen me in a glamorous avatar and looking hot," Zareen told IANS over phone from Mumbai.

Talking about the film, the Hate Story 2 actor said, "Yes, and I am so excited about it because a lot of people don't really know the real me and I really want people to know this side of me. people have this impression of me that she is this beautiful bimbette and a dumb person. I am not a dumb person I am much more to myself.

The actor, who has mostly portrayed a girl-next-door and bold characters on screen, says it will be a change of image with One Day. It's going to be a different 360 degree change from that and of course action is something I always wanted to do. So here's my chance,"she added.

The film, which also stars Anupam Kher, will be directed by Ashok Nanda and will go on floors by mid-February. Zareen Khan's latest Bollywood outing was Vikram Bhatt's horror flick 1921 alongside Karan Kundra which released on Friday, took off quite low at the box office.

Spurs chief says Kane, Alli not for sale

Spurs chief says Kane, Alli not for sale

Mauricio Pochettino's side are currently out of the Champions League places, although they can draw level on points with fourth-placed Liverpool if they win at Wembley and overtake Jurgen Klopp's side if they beat the Toffees by five goals or more.

But the club have a new 61,500-seat stadium to pay for at a time when rivals with deeper pockets are eyeing some of their top performers.

Top scorer Kane is reportedly coveted by Real Madrid and the Champions League holders have also been linked with midfielder Alli, along with Paris Saint-Germain. Left-back Danny Rose is believed to be a target for Manchester United.

But Levy has made it clear that the current window is a time for squad-strengthening, not weakening, and said he would reject any unwanted offers in the summer as well.

I'm 100 per cent confident," he said. Every single player that we want to keep, I can assure you will be playing for Tottenham Hotspur next season.

Mauricio's strategy has always been that if an opportunity arises that he thinks can improve the squad then we will need to look at it, but January is always a very difficult window.

Levy is in negotiations with Alli over a new contract that would bring him roughly into line with the money paid to Kane, who is Tottenham's highest earner and who may be granted a contract upgrade himself soon.

Midfielder Harry Winks is a doubt against Everton because of an ankle injury, Rose is set to miss out because of a knee problem while centre-back Toby Alderweireld is working his way towards a comeback from a hamstring tear sustained in early November.

The encouraging start to Sam Allardyce's reign as Everton manager has faded in recent weeks. The Toffees have not won in five matches and are out of the FA Cup following a painful third-round defeat at Liverpool last week.

Defender Mason Holgate was involved in a confrontation with Roberto Firmino at Anfield that could have consequences for both players.

Having claimed he was racially abused by the Liverpool striker, Holgate himself is reportedly facing the prospect of Football Association action for alleged homophobic tweets sent from a now-deleted Twitter account more than five years ago.

There is better news elsewhere for Allardyce, with right-back Seamus Coleman back in training after nine months out with a broken leg and Turkey striker Cenk Tosun set for his debut after completing his £27 million ($36 million, 30 million euros) move from Besiktas.

Captain Phil Jagielka has acknowledged that Everton have to be better in attack, saying: "The gaffer does not say to us that the be all and end all is to defend and we forget about going forward.

He wants us to cause problems for the teams we play against. It is up to us to find a mixture of both defensive resolve and attacking purpose.
