    Has anyone heard back from HMRC on this yet? I sent in my claim for 2019/20 on 22nd April. It's showing as 'processed' on the government portal but I definitely haven't heard anything from them or had any refund. 
    If you don't do Self Assessment, then it is likely they will have to wait until your income tax for that year is fully calculated before offering the refund.  I think this takes a few months from April normally.

    I have just had a letter that implied that I haven't actually paid enough tax in the last tax year and that technically I owe them a small amount. This cannot be the case because I'm a teacher and therefore my tax is all calculated already! 
    Initial 2 year fixed Mortgage (July 2019): £158,747 over 18 years. Overpaid £14,250 in Year 1, £13,400 in Year 2. Total mortgage reduced by £40,790 in 2 years. 

    New Mortgage (five year fix at 1.81%): June 2021
    Current Balance (01/06/2021): £117,957 over 14 years. Total overpayment in 2021 of £13,850. Lapsed tracking! Total Owing November 2022: £100,513. February 2023: £97,535. April 2023: £88,739. July 2023: £87,481. August 2023: £85,512. November 2023: £83,053. 

    Original End date: June 2039. Now June 2035. *GOAL* Mortgage Free by 2030.

    Sometimes PAYE doesn't always calculate the figures correctly (e.g. if you get any benefits) or your tax code was wrong.

    Post some figures (gross salary for the year, tax paid, tax code and any benefits) then people can provide some help.

    I have been at work as normal throughout this entire period; normal petrol costs, wear & tear on the car; normal insurance; time taken for commute..... meanwhile, I’m becoming increasingly irked by hearing from friends and colleagues who have been at home telling me gleefully how much they’ve saved on fuel, insurance breaks, extra time to do household activities, etc, and now they may be able to claim a tax rebate too!! TO THOSE WHO HAVE  IT SHALL BE GIVEN is the phrase that comes to mind - this is actually really unfair!!! What do others think? 😡😡😡

    I agree, it is unfair on those who've had to commute through this. Only £1.20 a week though- don't let it get to you too much.
