I have been working in retail( 2part time jobs) for the last 3 years, have received a letter from Inland Reven?

a letter from Inland Revenue, claiming that my employees didnt tax me enough for these 3 years and I owe them around £ 4200, which they intend to collect from my wages during next 12 months, but if they do this, I will have no money on living, whats the way out?

You need to go and talk to Inland Revenue at their local office. Maybe that way you can come to some sort of agreement. However, I feel that you will have to repay what you owe, whether your fault or the employers.

  1. You must not ignore HMRC, they make Nazi stormtroopers look pussycats!
    Ask for detailed explanation and then go to your previous employers to check.

    Unfortunately if mistakes were made you are still liable. I bet the problem is that you had 2 jobs but neither employer knew about your other job so you got taxed less. You are required to keep HM RC fully informed of your circumstances so they can alter your tax code.

    From the information given unless you have very good mitigating circumstances you owe the money! Probably the most you can do is claim hardship and request repayment over a long period.

    Once again do not ignore them – they will not go away!References :

  3. The first step is to make sure the figure demanded is correct. Did they send you a calculation? If not, then ask them for one now.

    If the figures are correct then you need to determine how this came about. What code numbers are your employers using? If they are both 647L then you are receiving double personal allowance. You should have had notification of the code numbers although if you are just on the basic allowance this may have been some time ago.

    When you first started the most recent job you should have completed a form P46 which the employer would have given you. Are you sure you ticked the box which said you have other earnings? Depending on the answers to all these questions you may be able to say that HMRC are at fault because they did not use the information in their hands to correct the position within a reasonable time.

    Otherwise you will have to pay the outstanding amount. You could ask to have it spread over a longer period. As it accrued over three years they might collect it over the same period.

    Good luck.References :

  4. That looks like you had three full personal allowances. So you have had that money as a tax free loan. We are reasonable and may well offer you time to pay – contact HMRC – explain your personal circumstances and ask for time to pay.References :
