Things have changed yet again. Thankyou for the Telegraph article which gave me pulpatations!
Went to tobacco shop for form, no you can no longer get them there, you have to go to the Hacienda office which we did.Given a long piece of paper with ringed bits, more or less saying we had to phone for a appointmewnt to hget the taxform and if you are lucky, for half a day a week may get an English speaking assistant.
Walde down the road and lo and behold a solicitors who spoke English. The receptionist who spoke perfect English told us that it was an almost impossible system for those who were not fluent in Spanish, he knew what was happening and said that all the banks were making people take tickets just to conform to the rule which was all ID, He was unable to wait that long himself!
He was aquainted with the problem and just said that by giving all the necessary documents, they could fill in the form and send it off before June30th for about 60 euros. This we are doing.
I will also as you said, check my tax code.
By the way, I realised that I should have looked more carefully, On the state pension I have an additional teachers pension i.e. 2 pensions, one £5,800 approxplus £2,000 Teachers pension.Add to this that we are talking sterling, a whole new light - this converts in euros as a higher figure; I think the lowest banding here is 6,600 euros . I also realised that I am paying off a loan on my late husband and mine, credit card which the bank converted into a loan, is this tax deductable at 100 euro a month?
My teachers pension is written on the back of my state pension and the tax(nil) is determined by my tax code which is given to the T pension. ie both are taxed at source. I presume ypou are tearing your hair out with me by now but I want the solicitor and myself to know
The depression around here is palpable through lack of knowlege, as the Telegraph said Idid have tax taken from me without me knowing a few months back. I supposed I had better mention that aswell! Many thanks for listening and helping me. You have been excellent!
