Yer you should get quite a bit back, your allowed to earn £6475 a year before paying any tax, so you should only pay tax on £525 of that, if it is £7000, im not sure how you claim it back if your an employee, ring HM Revenue? get some advice? My hubby is self employed so he just lets his accountant claim it back for him, xxx

Once you get your p60 for year to april 2011 you write to them asking for refund. It can take 5 or 6 weeks if you send it at start of may given annual backlog

Just call them - I phoned up a few years ago and got a nice bit of tax back, fairly hassle free. Need to call again actually and claim for last year too...

I work for a local council and they started to "emergency tax" me, even though i was only earning like 4000 in a year. I just sent a letter to the accounts department along with a phonecall and they sorted it out and I saw in my next paycheck weeks later

since when?

I have always had to claim it back and can take anything up to 6 months to receive it. They may just adjust your tax code rather than making a payment if you continue working as a full time employee

Hi, I am making a few assumptions here but, I assume that either you did not have a P45 when you started and completed a P46 and may ticked the wrong box which has wrongly put you on non cumulative emergency tax code (looking at your figures it would seem your tax code maybe BR) or the tax office has put you the wrong tax code. Either way I would call the tax office and explain that this is your first job since graduation and that you think that you are on the wrong tax code and they will check it for you and then issue the correct tax code to your payroll office. This will put things right in this tax year.

You can find the number to call here............. http://search2.hmrc.gov.uk/kbroker/hmrc/locator/locator.jsp?type=1

I've had tax rebates automatically paid out to me and I've also had to go in to tax office to get them. Seems hit and miss.

When I claimed mine back I had to send my P60 plus any proof of benefits i.e. if you were claiming job seekers for any part of the year as that will count towards your taxable income. I also sent my pay slips although they were probably not needed. You won't get your P60 until April so just wait and see what that says.

You are taxed 20% of anything you earn over £6475 up until £37,000 (approx). So if you earned £7000 from April 2010 to end of March 11 then you should have paid £105.00 as £525.00 is taxable at the basic rate of 20%.

I wrote a letter for mine and had it back within 2 weeks.

many thanks for the reply people, i think i might be over paying somewhat but regardless of that ill claim eventually so it will all be swings and round abouts, my GF is doing the same but it seems annoyingly ypou have to be unemployed to send off your p45 to claim... or is this incorrect on the part of the tax office? think im tax code M47L or sumthing like that....
