Customer Question

In 2016-17 HMRC gave a tax rebate to my son. Today he's had a letter asking for the money back - he's on very low income and has been off sick for 6 weeks so will not be paid - - is there anything we can do?

Hi,

I am an advisor at JA and happy to assist you.

I'll suggest that you phone HMRC and confirm why are they asking for money when they originally gave a rebate. If it all sounds reasonable then tell them the circumstances and ask them for time to pay.

Regards
