Income tax change
September 24, 2009 10:14am CST
My partner has just informed me his tax code has suddenly changed, they haven't given him a reason for this change, our circumstances haven't changed, so I have no idea why that's happened. He is now paying around £100 MORE in tax per month, we can barely afford to live on what he gets anyway without having to pay more out. Does anyone know why this has happened and if we can do anything about it. Thank you.

It sounds to me like a mistake. Firstly, he needs to take it to his employer. If possible, directly to the wages department. They should be able to rectify it if there is a mistake or explain it if there isn't. If there is no luck with them then you should get in touch with the tax people. Is it HMRC now? Well, you should be able to get the info from the DirectGov website anyway. Hope that helps.
