like you i am drawing my state pension with serps plus 2 small occupational pensions all of which hmrc are aware of plus working part time for my last employer whilst i dont object to paying the tax due on these amounts its the under payment restriction amounts(which varies with every letter) which wipes out my tax free allowance which they will not exactly explain merely saying "ask your employer"
he states they can only deduct the tax according to my code!
i have been 2.5 years semi rtd. arguing with them and with full retirement looming this year looks like i,m destined to spend my retirement persuing this thanks for your
Your part time employer is quite right he can only operate such codes as supplied by HMRC. However if you have a later code from HMRC you can show him the notification form and he can operate this on a month one basis. Doesn't help though if codes are changing as often as one changes one's socks! One wonders exactly why HMRC are operating in such a nit picking manner when there is clear evidence of massive tax evasion elsewhere. It is high time a policy of sensible employment of manpower were implemented!
However,, as they say, Rome wasn't built in a day! Just keep plugging away at HMRC. That 'ask your employer' was a classic at trying so hard not to get your tax code correct by shifting the blame!
