So some of us know about the Marriage tax allowance, but far to many are not claiming it. From tomorrow 6 April the allowance increases from £212 to £220 that can be transferred from one partner to another. Make sure you claim if you have not before, if you have claimed then nothing is needed to be done, but if you haven't claimed then you can ask for last years allowance to be paid to you as a cheque you may need to push for this. If you haven't claimed you could receive £432 back for the last 2 years.

If one of you earns less than £11,000 give them a call you have nothing to lose and cash to gain.

Marriage Allowance lets you transfer £1,100 of your Personal Allowance to your husband, wife or civil partner.

This can reduce their tax by up to £220 every tax year (6 April to 5 April the next year).

To benefit as a couple, you need to earn less than your partner and have an income of £11,000 or less.

If you were eligible for Marriage Allowance in the 2015 to 2016 tax year, you can backdate your claim to 6 April 2015.

Before you apply

You need you and your partner’s National Insurance numbers.

You also need a way to prove your identity. This can be one of the following:
##the last 4 digits of the account that your child benefit, tax credits or pension is paid into
##the last 4 digits of an account that pays you interest
##details from your P60
##details from any of your 3 most recent payslips

You’ll get an email confirming your application.

I think it's actually increasing from £212 to £220 but if you have claimed 2015/2016 it can be backdated.
So for those of us who have already claimed its only £220 for 2016/2017
is this a duplicate post? if not why would free money be voted cold?
*havent
It's clearer in the title but in the actual podt you say it's increasing from £212 to £432
Thanks for reminder.

sorry guys typo the 432 is the 220+212 from last year amended the title.
That's better - voted hot, surprising how many people haven't claimed this. I've mentioned to friends and they don't seem interested - to much hassle they say. Madness, they'd be the first to complain if taxes were increased.
Your partner must earn less than £42,385 also to claim.

Yes it is a duplicate post
I claimed about ten days ago for 2015/16. The tax rebate you get (£212) is that paid in a lump sum like a cheque of tax rebate to you or gradually over a period ??????
Or just do what I do and stash your wife in an offshore account in Jersey...
How do you claim for last year if you haven't already?

they will back date it for you when you apply, give them a call and ask them for a cheque rather than adding it to your tax code.

We're getting some really odd 'deals' on here lately.
I applied a few weeks ago and they updated my tax code so I got an extra £212 last month. What I am interested in is if this can really be applied for previous tax years? If so, how?
It only started 15/16 tax year so if you already availed of it there are no more years to backdate

As I said they changed my tax code- now it has a suffix "m" and has gone up to....well you forget now but it was correct

Some offshore account in Panama I believe.
I did this in the first few days of March and still not received a letter from HMRC nor has my husband's tax code changed. Glad to know I can claim back for last year's though so maybe I'll get it. Eventually.
Anyone fancy getting married to me for this?
Will this affect housing benefit top up, e.g. If I claim this will it just end up getting snatched back by housing benefit.

Depends if the housing benefit is based on gross or net pay, if gross no effect if net then it will effect.
typical Tory **** cut disabled people's money and give peanuts to people who make a lifestyle choice
Is this only if one of you are earning less than £11,000? Does it count if I am self employed but my wife is earning less than 11k?
Good info will have a look at Later

​Your payroll dept just need to update their software to accept the M suffix but as long as the number is right (which shows your tax free allowance) then that's the important thing. I wouldn't worry about the fact that it shows M, you'll still get the automatic uplift of 40 to your code this month (= £400 tax free allowance)
