How do I claim tax back?
It may be the case that you have paid too much tax during the tax year (6 April – 5 April). If so, you should contact HM Revenue & Customs to request a repayment of the overpaid tax.
How you claim your tax back depends on
- the type of tax you have overpaid (for example, is it tax on savings or from employment?); and
- when you are claiming the tax overpayment (for example, during the tax year or afterwards?)
You need to be aware that there are time limits in place when claiming your overpaid tax back!
There is more information on claiming tax back in the tax refunds section.
