Marriage Tax Allowace

7 replies 284 views
I applied for this a few years ago but never heard anything back from HRMC.   So I have just applied again and it says

2017 to present status active
2016-2017 applied for marriage allowance retrospectively
2015-2016 applied for marriage allowance retrospectively

Does this mean we actually got the rebate for the previous years....because I’ve never heard anything from them I really don’t know

    If you applied then the extra allowance would go to your DH. He would  receive a reduction in the tax he paid each pay day.

     He would only get a rebate of you applied after the end of the tax year.

    Hello there, I wonder if someone could help me.
    We got married in January this year 2020 but would like to backdate the marriage tax allowance.
    Is it possible to backdate to a date BEFORE you were getting married? 

    Thanks
    Rob

    To a tax year before you were married? No. The tax year you married? Yes.

    Just wanted to warn people about MARRIAGE TAX ALLOWANCE.com. we used this site in error. Their forms are so similar to HMRC. They charged over 50% (including VAT) of our allowance. Then their cheques bounced twice. We are still waiting for our money.  Please don't use them, ensure you are on the HMRC site.

    Defintely always click 'about us', these sites arent scams, they're service providers - very expensive ones!

    I personally think theyre are scamming people as they make there website looking the same as the HMRC site and there costs are quite hard to find. There certainly not up front and the whole package is there to draw you in and not to look to deeply. I would say that's trying to scam unsuspecting people. Totally underhanded and needs shutting down
