Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
Bad new I regret, you will most certainly have to pay something. You should check that the 6K calculation is actually correct. If it is not then write to the tax office concerned and appeal against the imposition.
Unfortunately, it is not their fault, but partly that of your employer who has clearly failed to properly operate PAYE when paying bonuses. The lump sum State Pension is another difficulty as it is paid gross and taxable. Did you complete a self assessment in that tax year?
I am at a total loss to understand how your State Pension was taxed before receipt! However, you declared the position so you are in the clear. Just make sure that HMRC's computation is correct, which I see that you are already in the process of doing.
Thank you for your support.
It all sounds suspiciously fishy to me! It is taxable however.
I wonder who taxed them, DWP does not usually and HMRC has nothing to do with the payment of pensions.
All I can say is that it is most odd. Still it's water under the bridge now.
