    Emergency taxed last month and nothing this month? 30th Nov 17 at 4:43 PM
    I started a new job a couple of months ago, last mo th was my first payday and as I didnít have p45 I was emergency taxed, called them and they said Iíd get it back this month when they updated my tax code. Today I got paid quite a lot more than expected, my payslip shows tax with a - next to it so thatís obviously whatís been paid back to me (from the emergency tax I paid last month) but I havenít been taxed again? And the amount given back seems more than I thought itíd be? Tax code on my payslip is 1150L which is right (last month was BR) so I donít get why Iíve had so much back/not been taxed? Not complaining but scared to touch it in case they demand it back or take it out of next months?

    If you were taxed at BR last month then moving to 1150 this month you have last month's allowance of £959 extra tax free this month. Is this your first job this year ?

    Only way to check your tax is if you give the figures.
    From P45 Tax code, any X after it, gross to date, tax to date.
    From first payslip taxable gross and tax paid.
    From second payslip taxable gross, tax refunded, taxable gross to date, tax paid to date and the month number or date payment made.
