    Tax code D0???????

    Tax code D0??????? 16th Jan 10 at 9:27 AM
    Help!!!!!!!!!! My husband took ill health early retirement in September 09 - he's nearly 60. He gets an ill health occupational pension of about 270 a week and got a tax code of 647L.

    This morning he got a new tax code through for use from April 2010. The letter said the tax code will be D0 from then, which they say means he will pay tax on his pension at 40%. He has no other income, but some savings.

    We'd worked out we could live on the 270 a week as I get incapacity benefit too. But if he has to pay tax at 40%, we will have much less.

    The letter says "your main HM revenue & customs office has worked out your tax code for your other employments(s) or pension(s) but we both need you to check that our information about you is correct."

    There ARE no other employments or pensions though.

    Have they made a mistake? We can't ring them till Monday but my husband is panicking.
