I am employed and PAYE I have a military pension taxed at 40%

This answer was rated:

I am employed and PAYE I have a military pension taxed at 40% a company car which again I pay tax is paid on it via the Company. I have filled in my tax return for 2013- 2014 on line as normal with all details of pay, pension and car taken from my p11d, P60 and the information from the paymaster general. There have been no changes at work salary over the last two years.
After filling in the online form it states that I have underpaid by £466.00 how can this be when all taxes have been declared and paid by the Company or the Pay master general?

Tax paid£3984.00
3. Salary £48405.77
Tax paid £10,103.20
4. Car £1975.00

Hope this what is needed sorry for the delay work does unfortunately get in the way
Hi Colin
Thanks for your response and the information asked for.
As your employment income alone sees you as a 40% taxpayer, then the pension is liable at 40% tax - which has been calculated correctly £9960 x 40% = £3984
Then the employment of £48405, plus the car and fuel benefit of £1975 and £1491 totals £51,871 sees the first £10,000 tax free and the next £31865 at 20% = £6373 and the remaining £10006 at 40% = £4002.40
o total tax on employment should be £10375.40 but you have only paid £10103.20 - so this creates a shortfall of £272.20
This will I suspect be due to the fact that the company car and fuel only began on 22/07/2013 and it takes HMRC time to get the information from your employer (as they make quarterly reports on company car/fuel changes, and then by the time the tax code is updated, and actioned by your employer, up to as much as 4 months can pass.
But as you advise that the unpaid tax amounts to £466.00 so do you have any other sources of income, such as taxed(or untaxed interest) or dividends ?
Perhaps you could advise what the tax calculation reads (with list all the incomes, less allowances and then how the charges of tax are made up)
