I earnt around £3k last year through a part time job and have been told that I didn't earn enough for my earning to be taxed. How do I go about getting my tax back?

Thank you!
If you didn't pay tax, you have nothing to claim back, surely?

The tax offce/HMRC assume that someone will be working 52 weeks per year, therefore, if someone earns over whatever the personal allowance/52 is, they get tax deducted, unless they fill ina form saying they're only doing temporary work.

Yeah, I know this

I'm just trying to figure out who has said that they didn't earn enough to be taxed.. it's correct of course, but if it was the tax office then that would imply that they'd not been taxed in the first place?

Probably confused you with my train of thought

easiest way is to go to your local tax office with your payslips, or p45 where they will calculate everything, and if you are entitled to, start the procedures for the tax rebate.

Or, send them a letter with copies of the payslips, or originals by recorded delivery.

Hi, I've read through some of the information at the top but I'm still a bit confused. I had a xmas temp job on the high street and have just left. I got my pay slip, and was taxed. I know I shouldn't have been as I'm not earning over the yearly limit etc, but I didn't hand in the P46 form in time. I've now left my job. How do I claim my tax back? What form do I fill in and how long will it take?

You can claim a tax repayment by filling in form P50 Claiming tax back when you have stopped working. Send this to your Tax Office, together with form P45, Parts 2 and 3 - and keep Part 1A for your own records.

Simple question

Say I earn

£6 per hour 40 hours a week one year i make £12,480.00
£7.00 = £14,560.00
£8.00 = £16,640.00
£9.00 = £18,720.00
£10.00 = £20,800.00


How much do I pay in tax? is it 12%

so
1497.60
1747.20
1996.80
2246.40
2496.00

Tax is 20% over your personal allowance.

Personal Allowance = £6000

Earnings before Tax: £12,000 ... Tax = £1200

etc.

Haven't included NI.

You send it to your own tax office - do you have any correspondence from HMRC with the address on it? If not, go here.

(Original post by hmrc.gov.uk)
If you're unemployed for at least four weeks or you retire or return to studies

If you think you've paid too much tax, you'll need to claim a tax repayment from us if any of the following applies:

* you've been unemployed for at least four weeks
* you stopped working because you've retired and you're not getting a pension from your old employer
* you've returned to studying

You can claim a tax repayment by filling in form P50 Claiming tax back when you have stopped working. Send this to your Tax Office, together with form P45, Parts 2 and 3 - and keep Part 1A for your own records.

We'll send you any tax refund you're entitled to by post. We'll also send you a new form P45, Parts 1A, 2 and 3, if necessary.

If you retire and get a pension from your old employer, you'll get back any refund you're entitled to with your pension payments. You won't need to claim a tax repayment using form P50.

"Oxon & Bucks Tax Office for individuals" - does that sound like your region?

If you're still unsure, and you don't have anything that states your tax office, try giving them a call (have your NI number to hand). It shouldn't take them long to be able to give you an answer: 0845 302 1434
