Tax Refund

Postby Barricadebill » Fri Nov 10, 2017 7:20 pm

I was made redundant in September 2016 , and I owed HMRC from a previous year,as my only income was a previous company pension, which had been taxed at 20% HMRC used my tax code against my pension so I wasn’t paying tax I also received a tax refund, subsequently I have recieved a P800 notice for an underpayment of tax for £1760 for the tax year 2016 - 2017, which is the amount of refund plus non paid tax.

Do I have any claim against HMRC to write off the debt as it wasn’t made clear that my tax bill would increase, and I would fall into debt, I actually queried this at the time of issue and was told by HMRC that I wouldn’t have to pay anything back.

They are saying I had double my tax allowance apportioned between two employers, this was also the same reason I owed tax from a previous year.

They are now asking for £3600. HELP.

unfortunately you have no choice but to pay the tax as you received too much tax free allowance. The onus is on the individual to contact HMRC to let them know if their tax code is incorrect.
