What Is a Tax Rebate?

A tax rebate is a refund you are entitled to if the tax you have paid is more than what you are supposed to pay. Normal circumstances in which this happens is if you were only employed for part of the year, such as a student on holiday, you had more than one job at the same time, or your circumstances changed e.g. you changed from full to part time working. To find out if you are eligible, call the tax rebate number. The refund will be issued to you at the end of a tax year, usually via cheque. Other circumstances where you might be overcharged include if you have retired or have paid tax on savings. You should claim your refund by filling out a form. For more information on getting your refund, contact the HMRC tax rebate department.

Tax dates all the way back to Medieval times, in 1203 when King John introduced an export tax on wool. 72 years later, King Edward I introduced taxes on wine. Income tax was first enforced by William Pitt in 1798 in his budget to pay for the weapons that would be used in preparation for the Napoleonic War, a continuation of wars influenced by the French Revolution which took place over a series of 12 years.

HMRC Workers To Strike On Crucial Tax Day

August 13th 2014

Another series of strikes are to take place in a dispute with the HMRC over office closures and job losses. Tax workers who are members of the Public And Commercial Services union are to walk out of their jobs in the next few days threatening to disrupt the services of Her Majesty’s Revenue And Customs.

The union is campaigning against the decision to close enquiry centres up and down the United Kingdom. It has caused a loss of 2000 jobs and has led to enormous backlogs, lengthy delays and the use of private debt collection agencies. The union believes that Her Majesty’s Revenue And Customs is not only harming the welfare of its employees; it is putting a strain on important services the public needs.

The strikes are expected to begin in areas of Wales and the north west today. It will extend to Scotland and parts of the Midlands tomorrow. Then, there will be major striking taking place on Friday with walk-outs expected to take place across London, Yorkshire, Northern Ireland and both the south east and south west of England.

The general secretary of the Public And Commercial Services union, Mr. Mark Serwotka, said: “HMRC plays an essential role in our economy and our society, collecting the taxes that fund the other public services we all rely on. But it is being systematically undermined by unnecessary and politically-motivated cuts.These strikes demonstrate we are serious about stopping these damaging cuts and making a positive case for proper investment in this crucial department.”

The strikes have deliberately been timed to coincide with one of the most important days of the year for tax workers — the deadline for tax credit renewals and self assessment payments.

A spokesperson for Her Majesty’s Revenue And Customs said: “It is a great shame that the union is asking HMRC staff to strike, deliberately putting the livelihoods of hard working families at risk to further an industrial dispute.”

5.5 Million Incorrectly Taxed By HM Revenue And Customs

June 20th 2014

Millions of British workers have been incorrectly taxed by HM Revenue And Customs. Mistakes by the government department mean that 5.5 million people have either been over paid or under paid what they should. This has affected people who are on the Pay As You Earn scheme.

The Daily Telegraph reports that around 3.5 million people have paid too little and will have to pay back the rest. Another 2 million people have paid too much tax and will have to claim it from the government. The average error according to tax officials is an estimated £300.

The figure is an increase on that of 2012 to 2013 which saw 5.2 million people incorrectly taxed for the year. This is in spite of the introduction of a £270 million HM Revenue And Customs scheme to make the tax system for accurate for workers.

One of the things that the £270 million scheme introduced was a Real Time Information programme that allows employers to report changes to wages on a weekly or monthly basis. The plan was to make taxes more accurate.

A spokesperson for HM Revenue and Customs said: “The effect of Real Time Information is not reflected yet as it has not bedded in, but over time RTI will help to reduce the number of cases that have to be reconciled.”

Under the Pay As You Earn system, tax paid is checked against tax owed at the end of each year. Under payment or over payment can come as a result of changes in circumstances. This might be a change in employment or receiving state benefits such as income support or disability allowance.

David Heaton of Baker Tilly said: “RTI was supposed to make PAYE more accurate, not less. So why are there more [errors] this year, with RTI in full flow, than last year, when RTI was only a pilot? The number of PAYE differences has risen, not fallen. Something in RTI is not working.”
