    Are you earning this regularly, or is it on an ad hoc basis. It depends on how the employer is handling the PAYE. Your gross salary, were this paid for 52 weeks, is £7,800 which is below the IT and NI threshold, so you could claim reimbursement of this at the end of the tax year but you should be able to organise it with the employer so you are paid gross. You need to speak to their payroll department

    Basically if you are earning less than £11,000 a year (which you are) then you shouldnt be paying tax.
    HMRC may have assumed you will be earning enough to pay tax though, especially if you have only recently started the job.
    Either way, you have the wrong tax code.
    Phone up HMRC and get them to sort it. You should get any overpaid tax back on your next pay day.

    There's probably an issue with your tax code, it's a common problem. As you earn less than £11'000 pa, you shouldn't be paying income tax.

    Ring up HMRC and explain your situation, they should be able to sort it out quickly. Just remember to have your NI number handy.

    I'd say call 6ish or later, or early in the morning. Otherwise their lines can be very busy some days. (I called at 6 and got through instantly)
