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?
keep ringing.apparently claiming back tax takes time.
Ergh I need to do this too. I don't even have any P60 or P whatever forms. Annoying!
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!
i have a question ive been in part time employment for my gap year, i will now be starting university in september, whilst continuing with my part - time employment. Will i be able to claim any tax back at all?
thanks for the swift reply
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.
my tax took ages to come back, but then i did have 2 jobs which confused them
and just cos your a student doesnt mean your exempt from getting taxed
er...yes. students aren't taxed.according to my payslips and student unions anyways.
