Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hi again.You cannot transfer any of your wife's unused personal allowance to yourself for 2014/15 or earlier tax years unfortunately. The married couple's allowance which is only available to those couples where one or both of the spouses was born before 6 April 1935 can be switched between spouses.As you can read here, from 6 April 2015, your wife will be able to transfer 10% of her personal allowance to you which will save you some tax at 20%. You can apply to do that here.I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.
