    I started a new job like nearly two months ago and when I got my first wages I got taxed £70 although I shouldn't have cause it's only part time and I earn just over £4k, I think I was on an emergency tax code or something.
    How do I resolve this and get a refund on the £70?

    It is quite common to be put on an emergency tax code when you first start a new job if a P45/P46 isn't filled out in time for your first pay, but don't worry you are totally entitled to your money back When this happened to me, my employer sorted it all out for me so you could always ask your manager about the situation? If your manager is unable to do anything, you could contact the Citizens Advice Bureau, they can help with this sort of thing

    The tax year ends at the end of this month so after that you can claim the money back.

    This happened to me! I rang HMRC on 0845 300 0627 (make sure you have your NI number handy) and they changed my tax code to the right one, (they should send you a letter confirming this) and I got all the money back next time I got paid

    Phone your local tax office (you should be able to fine a phone number on the internet) and phone them up. Ive phoned them up before and they have always been pretty good and got stuff sorted quick.

    I had this. Unless things have changed, you fill in a P46 and you get the money back when you next get paid.

    If you can't be bothered to do anything they will eventually send you a cheque for it but don't hold your breath!

    Happened to me for MONTHS they kept saying that I needed paperwork from my old job so in the end I just gave up as the tax office were no help and nor was my work place. Then one day I had a letter from the tax office with a cheque for £450!

    So yeah try and give the tax office a call and they should help you out

    Because they assume you'll be earning the same amount each week. Therefore, work it out weekly.

    This is an old thread. You're better off starting a new thread as this one is pretty old.
