Hi. My name is Tony. I'm looking at your question now and will post my answer or ask for more information here in a short while.

Expert:  TonyTax replied 5 days ago.

Unless your mother's income exceeds £12,500 per annum she will have no income tax liability. Attendance Allowance is tax free in any event.

 

I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.

I have been asked about the tax record of my 95 year old mother, redident in a nursing home. She never worked outside the home, before or after marriage and is a widow. I dont think she made a taxreturn ever and never had an income apart from state pension and attendance allowance
