Are you cotinuing to work there or was it a one off?

If you are then you must continue to pay tax, wait until the end of the tax year (April 5th 09) then if you are eligible you can claim it back.

You may not be elegible for tax refund if you are earning over a certain amount (it depends how much you earn overall each year, which can't be calcualted until the end of the year!!)

I filled out a P45 where I work (either that one or a P46) to stop tax and on my last wage slip I got my tax back.

I would be worried if you filled in a P45. Have you just stopped working there?

You need to get your P60 from the people you went to work with (or the temp agency if you did it through them), as this shows how much you have earnt/paid tax on, throughout the year and thus, can work out if you are owed money. Although you may find this difficult as it was last summer (lol)

Did you have any other jobs from April 06 to April 07?

lol doubt it was that either. A P46 is for you if you lost P45. Maybe it was P60? (end of year certificate?)

Ha no sorry. I have been ignoring the whole thing. I dare not get an overdraft as I would go on a spending spree!!

You can fill in an R40 form for claiming tax back:

http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/forms/r40.pdf

But they ask for the amounts on your P60 (hence why you need it).

If you ring the place up they maybe able to give you a copy, but if its a really small company they may not have it. But pester and they could give you one.

Get either a P60, P45 or a Statement of Earnings from your employer, at the same time ask them for the address of their local tax office (not your local) and get them to right you a letter explaining your situation. Send it all off by recorded post and you should have your money in no time. I would of thought Tescos would be more helpful!...Down with local economy destroying companies I say!
