    Ask your employer/manager about getting a P46 I think it is sent off.

    It's 1 of these I think:

    No, it is a P38(S). A P46 is filled in if you don't have a P45 (so you may have to complete both).

    What does it say your tax code is

    if it is BRW1 you are on emergency tax and have to chase the tax man around with quite a few forms and your employer to stop getting taxed anymore, and to get that money refunded you have to see your local office and send off more forms.(pain takes months im still in the middle of it all)

    if the code is something like 500L it is normal and you are getting taxed based on how much you should if you worked that many hours every week/month for the year, if you then work less (or none at all) one month it gets adjusted about and your money paid back in theory.

    You can probably download a form from the HMRC site, but talk to your employer.

    I sent off a P46 form because it was my first job and I've never had a P45 before. Took a while and then I stopped getting taxed, I then only got my tax back until I quit my job and gave the HMRC office that deals with my tax etc. and I was told to send my P45 away with a cover letter. Four weeks after sending the letter I got my money back

    I also filled out a form on the hmrc website and it said i shouldnt have been taxed that much ??

    Any money that is not supposed to be taxed, you will get it back... eventually.

    I got taxed when I first started, 23% I think emergency tax. I called head office and they sent a form to my manager who filled most of it in, and I done the rest. The tax stopped, and after a while, I got the £200+ tax they owed me in one of my normal weekly payslips. I didn't even have to write to them or anything.
