Dear Sir/Madam, I am a 64 years old working as an agency nurse since 2000, I paid my income tax as PAYE until now and still is. I received my state pension since October 2008
HMRC said I owed tax of £ 17,000 over the five years peroid.Suddenly Nov. 2011 HMRC sent self assessment returns from 2008 till 2011 for me to complete. CAB Epsom advised and assissted me to fill in the forms and were rturned to HMRC Cardiff office.
Since I am an agency nurse from 2000 I am classified as self employed, I never claimed on travelling expenses and other expenses relating to my contract works, approx £ 3000 yearly for 13 years around £39,000.Can I claim back these expenses or counter claim against the £ 17000 tax owning ??
My husband had been very ill with liver problem around November 2011, the assessment forms were delayed in return. A letter said I was fined £ 200, then after I explained my circmstances ,another letter said I did not owe any fine.Then 3 months later HMRC said I owe £ 200 and then I sent a letter to explain my circumstances to Northern Ireland HMRC office and still awaiting for the out come.
Now HMRC is regarding me as a self employed, and wants Self Assessment forms to be sent yearly to their office therefore last month I received a letter that I owe £ 800 as their office said they did not received the self assessment forms for 2011 -2012. I never received the self assessment forms for that peroid. As I carried on paying my income tax as PAYE, I did not regard myself as a self-employed until now.
what is my situation in this case ??
My house is on an interest only mortgage and contract is ending 0n 15-11- 2013. I am trying to get an extenison for this mortgage other wise my husband and I will be homless.
I am travelling up to yorkshire for agency work to pay the mortgage and this harressment
from HMRC is very distressing and feeling of hopelessness. Can I make an appointment to see a tax advisor without a costly bill at the end of the meeting ? My name is XXXXX XXXXX Mobile XXXXXXXXXXX [email protected]
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX to hear from you. Lena Broadhurst
