Finally got through to the tax people at HMRC today and they agreed I have overpaid quite a large sum of tax. I'm told they'll put a form in the post within the next 14 days for me to fill in and return, and that any payment would then take 20 working days to be made. The cogs grind very slowly for them but I think t'would be different if I was at fault :unimpressed:

No sure whether this belongs on the happy, unhappy, or angry thread.

I reached the milestone (millstone?) age of 65 today.  More time for modelling, perhaps, but a nasty reminder of the advancing years.  No doubt there will be a string of replies saying that I am a mere youngster, but it doesn't feel that way this morning.  :'(
Just wait soon your days will filled so full with NHS appointments that you wonder what leisure time was, and you will know off by heart every poster and magazine in the waiting room. Seriously you will soon find you don't have enough hours in the day with all your new found leisure activities.

As a new State Pension recipient, my wife recently found out that tax on the State Pension is charged on what she has been paid plus the amount sitting in the Government’s bank that she did not receive until two weeks into the new tax year. This means that a new state pension recipient is liable for the tax on up to 4 weeks pension accrued but not paid at 5 April. So if your first pension idue week is in early March you could receive no money in the tax year but be liable for the tax on the 4 weeks of accrued pension!

That's interesting, Mike. Not sure I understand but no real surprise.

My state pension isn't taxable at source but forms a chunk of my personal allowance. My 'other' pensions get taxed and have their own tax codes.

There's no escape!

I shall be at the GPs on Wednesday morning,  my answer would be,  I'm fine,  which I am, as long as I keep taking the pills.  The visit is to the Vampire.  The following week,  I shall visit again and my answer will be I'm fine.  I will be prodded, weighed, measured and get the results of the Vampire.

Aaah, the annual 'MoT' - I went down to have the blood-sucking bit done last week, and within 24 hours had a phone call from them saying we didn't like something we saw, can we have another lot?  :worried: ???

Yes Dave, it was a bit surprising. She drew down a pension amount which meant the total income she received in the tax year was £12 over her personal allowance. The tax she had to pay was over £70 because HMRC counted the weeks of State Pension due before 5 April but which she did not receive until 10 April. This "accrued" amount put her £350 over her personal allowance.

From the Income Tax (Earnings and pensions) Act 2003, Part 9, Chapter 5 :-

"577
United Kingdom social security pensions
(1)
This section applies to—
the state pension,
graduated retirement benefit,
industrial death benefit,
widowed mother’s allowance,
widowed parent’s allowance, and
widow’s pension.

578
Taxable pension income
If section 577 applies, the taxable pension income for a tax year is the full amount of the pension, benefit or allowance accruing in that year irrespective of when any amount is actually paid. "


If a person is in employment the relevant date for tax is the date that an amount is actually received, not earned or accrued.

Don't forget to ask for interest on the overpayment - after all, they rack that on any underpayment you have to make, along with the 'late payment' penalty...  >:(

Unless they have finally fixed the problem in the first year of retirement the inland revenue computer includes an estimate of earnings that includes the last years earnings plus state pension in the calculation of tax code. When I retired i queried the tax calculation and it was immediately recalculated manually.

another point to consider, if your wife does not use all her tax allowance for her pension/s, she can transfer 10% [IIRC] of her tax allowance to you.

We did that when my wife retired, as my various pensions took me over my allowance.

worth looking into, 1d saved is 1d towards an N gauge loco  >:D

So I went down for another blood sucking session, and after the deed was done, the nurse went to update the computer and suddenly said 'wait - they wanted a fasting blood test'. The person on the phone didn't say that, says I. 'OK, these are useless, can you come in again, after fasting this time?'  >:(

Quite a few pages ago I posted that my friend had found out he has a brain tumour.

Since then it was diagnosed as the least bad sort, still needing surgery to remove however. He's now had another MRI and they told him it wasn't what they first thought. He's going in tomorrow for a 6-hour op to have it removed. All of this is awful enough but he apart from the initial "access" phase into his head, shall we say, he has to be awake for he whole operation.

Sort of puts stuff into perspective really and I cannot begin to imagine how his wife and family will be feeling tomorrow.

If anyone has 5 minutes spare tomorrow from about noon could they please send positive vibes towards Leeds General Infirmary. I would appreciate it greatly.
