Tax code

6 replies 132 views
My wife has a rental property and pays tax through PAYE. She is a nurse and a basic rate tax payer. The tax owed on the rental income is £882. What should her tax code be for 2019/20 please? Many thanks in advance

    For 2019/20 as in last tax year or do you mean £822 owed to be collected in 2020/21? This really depends whether she pays her tax on the property income through self assessment or through a reduction in her PAYE tax code at her employment. Subject to further clarification I can only inform you that, to collect an additional amount of £882 through PAYE the tax free allowance would reduce by 4410 from 12500 to 8090. The tax Code becomes 809L.

    12850? 

    Apologies if I missed that info from OP, but I suspect you might've had a long day   :)

    You could not be more correct. 1285L is MY own tax code. 👍and I have, for someone who is supposed to be retired, a very long day.

    She should however have a starting allowance of more than the normal £12500 as being a nurse she should have a "laundering" allowance which will increase her tax code.

    Laundry allowance plus shoes and tights allowance (work use only) and professional subscriptions.
