I have just started receiving my state pension, so my tax code has changed. I am also in receipt of 2 private pensions, one a civil service and the other a local government pension. I have contacted the tax office to ensure that my tax liability was taken from the same pension I had always paid it from. Now they tell me that my tax code for the remainder of this tax year will not allow for the £10000 tax free allowance everyone else gets, because their systems only operate on a pensioner receiving the full year's pension, do you understand what I am saying? This means that instead of paying about £6.00 per month tax I will be charged approximately £140.00 per month from my £10300 annual income.
