I've just tried to do my online return (I'm paye but earnt above £100k) and its telling my i owe £4600 tax - can that be right if i'm paye?
Thank you for your question...If you earned over £100k, then you start losing your personal allowance... £1 reduction for every £2 of additional income over the threshold. If your income is £121,000 or above then your allowance will be zero...£10,000 allowance is equivalent to £4,000 tax at 40%.More information on persoanl allowances for income over £100,000 can be found herehttps://www.gov.uk/income-tax-rates/income-over-100000 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.
