Hi,

I finished my 2 week contract at this hellhole of a warehouse a month ago and the idiots taxed me £54 even though I told them hundred times I was a student in full time education. I rang up HM and they told me to send my P60 and a cover letter to their offices in Liverpool so they can decide the outcome. I've not heard anything back yet. Nobody's answering the phone so I have no idea whats going on.

Has anyone here claimed tax? How long did it take for you to get it back?

Thank you.

Yeah, this happened to me too. Sent my P60 and a covering letter explaining what happened and got a cheque about 3 weeks later. They like to hold on to the money for as long as possible lol.

If you did this job after April 2007 (this year) then I'm pretty sure you won't get it back until after April 2008! Unlucky I know! I still haven't got my tax back from the last tax year (April 06 - April 07)!!! But you will eventually get it back!

well you weren't a student at the time (during your gap year) so they can tax you. you'll have to contact someone in the organisation or speak to your boss to remind them to not tax you once you start uni.ask them to provide you with the necessary forms (i'm not sure which it is).

I've recently just got my tax back from last year. You need to write to your local inland revenue tax office and tell them that you are wanting to claim back your tax. You also have to send them your P45, so that means you can't do it until the end of this tax year (in April) which is really annoying.

Students are taxed on anything above the lower earnings limit (which is around 5000 pounds)
