If somebody is working (especially self employed) their tax affairs may be complicated enough to pay a professional to act for them. This does not apply to the majority of retired people.Frequently they need to claim back some of the tax on building society interest and dividends.This is very simple. (1) Ask your tax office for a rebate form(2) Fill in the gross interest/dividends and the tax deducted.Post the form.The only cost is the phone call to your tax office and the stamp.
robbing bastards 40 %
The other day I was amazed to be told that the tax man could owe ME money! Nah not on your life I thought, more likely the other way round! My friend had been given a form about The Tax Refund company, filled it in and 6 weeks later had a cheque for £200! I also wasn't aware that if your tax code is wrong, it is your duty to inform the Inland Revenue, not the other way round! It is claimed by the Inland Revenue, albeit quietly, that there is between £1 and £10 billion of unclaimed overpaid tax, some of it could be mine, so I am filling in a form today! The Tax refund company is the UK's leading personal tax rebate specialist, having recovered over £60 MILLION for ordinary Joe Bloggs taxpayers like you and me, in their 5 year history. It may be that you do some work from home, i.e. making phone calls, do you launder clothing provided by your place of work? Do you have to provide your own protective clothing? Are you required to use you car for business use? If you do any of these things, the team will more than likely sniff out a rebate for you! It is claimed by PTS that more than 40% of those who have made a claim have been successful, with the average rebate being £147.28 per claimant, sounds good to me! Don't think that you will have to fill in a huge booklet or lengthy form, it is one side of A4 paper to be filled in, nothing more sinister than name, address, company details, marital status, number of children and national insurance number and a ten tick box questions. All you have to do is send your latest payslip and/or P60 and your latest coding notice, all of which are returned to you. Once you have filled in the form you return it to their office, freepost which is always a bonus! The company will contact via telephone, post or email for any additional details they may require and set to finding you a rebate! You may be wondering how much this will cost you? That was certainly uppermost in m
y mind, well after the prospect of a little windfall anyway! The answer is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! On the form you sign a statement to say that if they are successful in obtaining a rebate, they receive 40p in the pound. It may sound a bit steep, but at the end of the day you are receiving 60p in the pound, of money you never knew you had, so to all intents and purposes it is free, if a rebate is not obtained then you pay nothing, so what have you got to lose?? NOTHING! You have a better chance of obtaining a rebate than of winning the lottery and those are good enough odds for me! To find out more information go to www.taxrebates.com
