I have received two letters from HMRC in the last two months.

Customer Question

I have received two letters from HMRC in the last two months. One stating I have underpaid tax for tax period up to 5/04/2012 and another for 5/04/2013 (£1310.86 and £1451.67).
On the P800 they have attached for period up to 5/04/2013 it states the below: -

PAYE Income 36755 Tax Paid 7967.99
Car fuel benefit 4242 Tax Paid 0
Car Benefit 4074 Tax Paid 0
Medical Insurance Payments 471 Tax Paid 0
Jobseekers allowance 263 Tax Paid 0

From this it would appear all the tax I owe is from taxable benefits.

I have a copy of my P11D from my employer covering the same period, all the details are correct I.e. Car make and model and benefit value along with fuel benefit and Health benefit.

I had these same benefits minus the health in the year up to 05/04/2012 so they are nothing new.

If my employer has submitted these details on P11D's and Ive had them for two years then How come I have not been taxed on them?

I obviously pay my tax out of my salary so why have I not been deducted enough from and why do I owe nearly 3k in tax all of a sudden?

Any help appreciated.

Can you tell me what your final tax codes were for each of the 2011/12 and 2012/13 tax years please. These will be shown on your P60 for each year. How long have you had a company car?
