I spent hours searching for this under marriage allowances and on HMRC tax pages so really appreciate you passing this on.
thank you again.
It's just a tax refund which needs to be declared to DWP. The reason for it could be hundreds of different things.
have them the info and asked for a payment plan which I need to then share with council tax as they will also need repaying.
it’s sickening as the HMRC married allowance pages don’t refer to uc needing to be told so now we are regretting doing anything and it’s caused a huge amount of stress while I am undergoing invasive medical tests and awaiting a treatment plan.
it could be a refund because of a claim for the allowance for washing uniform at home, or an allowance for working from home, or any other claim for a tax allowance.
It is not just a tax rebate for the Marriage Transfer Allowance claim that affects UC.
