the on-line calculator .

Hi.
There is information on the married couples' allowance here:
http://taxaid.org.uk/guides/information/rental-income-savings-income-and-pensioner-issues/pensioners/paye-and-the-married-couples-allowance
The age allowance and the married couple's allowance are restricted if your income is too high but there is a minimum amount of married couple's allowance so you will be entitled to something.
Call the tax on the number at the link below and ask them to review the allowances given and to change them as necessary while you are on the phone. They will then issue a revised P800. The telephone number is ***** and HMRC is open until 4pm today:

I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.
