Hi All,

Okay, so a little while back, the legend Martin Lewis wrote a news paper article about claiming money back for washing work uniform that has a logo on it and cannot be worn outside of work.

I was just wondering what peoples feedback on this has been?

I have had a cheque through today for £33.35, and it covers the tax years 2008-9, 2009-10, and 2010-2011

Althrough not as much as I had initially hoped for, I can't complain at free money!

I do have a question for anyone (or martin himself) that paid attention to this and has tried it through... I thought the newspaper article stated that I can claim back 5 years worth?

If this is the case can anyone explain why I have only had 3 years claimbacks for this? is it worth me sending another letter asking them to consider years 2006-2007 and 2007-2008?

Thanks on advance for any feedback or contributions!

And thanks to Martin for pointing this out so I could reclaim some of my well earned cash!
