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.
The Inland Revenue ceased to exist over five years ago on amalgamation with HM Customs and Excise to form HMRC. Are you sure this communication is not a scam? Are personal details being requested?
Just amend your tax return to correspond with your employer's data and all will be resolved. Net year just stick to that data, not yours in your return. This sort of nit picking by HMRC is now par for the course as tangling with the big boys with their armies of accountants and legal advisers has proved to be an exercise in financial futility for HMRC. I accept that they did just win a action against the Barclay Brothers running into the billions, but that represents a flash in the pan for the Department these days.,
If HMRC require you to make a tax return you must comply. Most taxpayers in the UK, particularly those on PAYE, do not have to complete one. If you have additional income over and above that covered by PAYE and your tax code a return will be required.
You should prepare your return from your P60 and your employer's P11d return [benefits in kind] if these are not reflected on your P60.
