Are Tax rebates granted solely by the HMRC? No, I was given

Customer Question

Are Tax rebates granted solely by the HMRC?
JA: Have you talked to a tax professional about this?
Customer: No
JA: Anything else you want the Accountant to know before I connect you?
Customer: I was given Tax rebate by HMRC in the past tax year. However, my employer kept sending me payslips carrying unusual amounts instead of my actual pay. When I questioned those unexplained payslips, the answer was that they were tax rebates. So it means I was being given tax rebates from two sources (HMRC and my employer) which I find hard to comprehend.

Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.

Why were you receiving rebates anyway?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I thought there's something fraudulent about the whole thing. I am being paid weekly upon submitting my Timesheets, so I do receive a weekly payslips. On 14 occasions I was issued with payslips carrying amounts ranging from £ 47.56 to £ 287.11. Those payslips stood for a 40 hours of work each week. They could not explain if those amounts were Tax rebates, then where are the monies for the hours I worked, and indeed from which the rebates originated?

Sounds like a racket of some sort to me. Ask your tax office what is going on and report your employer's antics to them.
