If you have paid Emergency Tax at any point in the last 4 years then you are entitled to an emergency tax refund. It may be that you have not benefited from your yearly tax free allowance. Using our service will also get you put on the right tax code so you are paying the right amount of tax.
You can find out if you’re on an Emergency Tax by checking your tax code in your pay slip which has a suffix or prefix of BR, X, WK1 or MTH1.
Your tax code assumes that you will work a full tax year. However, if you stopped working part way through the year for any reason, then it’s possible you may have paid too much tax. You are entitled to a full tax refund on any overpaid tax going back over the last 4 years.
Anyone who earns more than the current tax free allowance threshold is eligible to pay tax – and this includes students. However, it is highly unlikely that you, as a student, will have earned more than your tax free allowance.
Your employer may not have taken this into account though, so it is very possible you are due a tax refund, especially if you know you have earned less than 10,000 in one tax year. It is free to find out if you are due a tax rebate.
You may be entitled to a tax rebate from HM Revenue & Customs, if you have been fired or made redundant during the tax year.
This is because HMRC calculate your tax based on the fact that you will work the full tax year. Due to this, you may have paid too much tax on your wages while you were working.
It doesn’t matter if you were made redundant or were fired, you are still entitled to claim back any overpaid tax. It will usually take four to six weeks to receive your tax rebate, depending on your individual tax office and the time of year.
