    i'm hoping i walk into the house tonight with a refund but i think i'm good - everyone in my workplace gets the same wage and all have the same tax code me thinks - so we're either ALL good, or ALL in the sheet.. lol

    yep-theres a huge batch arriving today,but they are still more to send so not getting one today doesnt mean you wont get a demand/refund.Tbh,was shocked mrs barky got a refund-you just trust your employer to get it right.

    Pretty convinced mine will be fine-my brother is a qualified accountant and does all my paperwork etc so would be surprised if it wasnt exactly spot on(I hope)

    you know the country is in a bad state when you can't count on the old saying "only 2 things are certain - death and taxes" lol

    yep all 6 million of them !

    Not really up to speed on this news but is it mainly self employed that are going to be incorrect as I assume employers being responsible for my taxes being paid would mean it should be correct.

    I find it a bit sad that this is being put in the media as a "bad thing". If anything it's a good thing.

    4.3million are going to be getting paid vs 1.4million who will need to pay some (that they already owed).

    The employer normally has nothing to do with your tax code (certainly in Public Sector), it's the tax man who has allocated the wrong code

    you all owe me cash .. so the hand wriiten demands should be with you soon

    sadly you wont get the money back in one go, sounds like they just amend your tax code for next year to pay it off over 12 months. So it'll be about 30-40 a month.

    I find it a bit sad that HMRC paid £289,000,000 for a new supercomputer & software and its twice as bad as the old system!

    Heads should roll but they never do in IT civil service contracts.

    no, it caused them!

    HMRC is blaming on the introduction of a new computer system last summer. It merged 12 old computer systems which contained details of our incomes, on to one newer system. It meant that millions were given the wrong tax code - which determines what rate of tax is levied and when personal allowances kick in.

    Have you actually read that article??

    "If you had given HMRC information that would have enabled them to adjust your tax code to make sure that you did pay the right amount of tax, then, if the time limit has passed for them to use that information, they cannot pursue you for the unpaid tax."

    In other words, if your circumstances changed and you alerted them, fine, you may have a case. If not, looks like paying it back will happen...
