    I'm earning, at most, £300 a month from my minimum wage part-time job and am being taxed. However I heard that if you're not earning more than £850 a month then you shouldn't be getting taxed. Does anyone know if this is true?

    Is it emergency tax?
    Contact HMRC and ask for it back.
    I've done it before when I was earning £800 a month 😂

    You should more than likely be on the standard tax code of 1060L but I'm going to assume if you check a payslip it'll say 0T or something.

    If it does you need to contact HMRC and get it changed. Enjoy sitting on hold for an hour.

    Thanks so much guys!! I just called up HMRC and they changed my tax code to the correct one (I was on BR before) so I'll be refunded the money they taxed me All in all I was on the line for only 23 minutes!
