Hello and welcome to the site. Thank you for your question.

Please advise what your tax code is.

We are not linked to HMRC but if you give me the relevant information I will check it for you.

Many thanks

my tax code is 144l

Expert:  taxadvisor.uk replied 1 year ago.

Margaret, thank you for your reply.

You say you are going to be 75 on 11 Apr 2015.
I take it you are born between 6 Apr 1938 and 5 Apr 1948.

144L means you can earn £1440 additional to your sate pension before you would be taxed as state pension although taxable is paid gross.
If £13,140 is total income from all sources e.g state pension, pension from previous employers etc then the first £10,600 would be tax free as it is covered by your personal allowance and you would pay tax on the balance at 20%.

Please advise your income by source.
Have you received any correspondence from HMRC giving you a breakdown of your tax code.

Please advise.

Many thanks

Would you like me to continue with your question.

hi sam

yes please

its just that it said to let them know if I earned less than 27700 pounds. and I don't earn anything like that.. I am so confused

Expert:  taxadvisor.uk replied 1 year ago.

Margaret, thank you for your reply.

Basiccally, you get a personal allowance of £10,600.

As your pension takes £9,441 of this allowance, the balance of £1,449 is available against other pensions. So £1,449 of your NHS penison would be tax free and the rest would attract tax at 20%.

Additionally, if you have any other pension as outlined by you, this would also attract tax at 20%.

You would only start to lose your higher personal allowance if your total income exceeded £27,700 in the tax year.

Your original question was - "my age will be 75 yrs on the 11th april, I only get 13thousand 140 pounds and70 pence per annum and not 27700 so is my tax code right please".

Based on what you have stated, your income would be less than £27,700. So it would appear you have the correct tax code.

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.

If you have any other questions, please ask me before you rate my service – I’ll be happy to respond.
