    Tax rebate 20th Mar 17 at 7:41 PM
    My daughter applied for a tax rebate some 5 weeks ago.she phoned hmrc today and was told she would have to wait until 6th April. Is this the norm? The gov.uk website says a rebate will be paid within 5 weeks of applying.

    Thanks in advance

    the tax year ends on the 5th April, until then they cannot be 100% sure of the final income for the year...she could still earn more this year

    But there are some tax repayments which can be claimed before the tax year ends.

    How did she claim/apply? Was a particular form filled in?

    P800 is a calculation HMRC send out not a form for applying for a refund.

    Did she receive a P800 showing a refund was due then go online to provide bank account details for the refund to be paid into her account?

    Not sure. I think I will get her to call them again to confirm she has definitely made a claim for the tax refund.
