Question around HMRC overpayments
I know this is probably a question for HMRC. But has anyone come across this issue before.
I filed my self assessment earlier in the year (about 5 months ago now). It had calculated I had overpaid a fair bit in taxes (this is also because I work as a sole trader in my spare time - photography / audio visual conlsultant).
None the less, let's say for namesake I had overpaid £5,000. It was stuck at this for the past 5 months. What I've heard is, it's backlogged due to COVID and this has taken ages for them to reimburse overpayments.
Well, today I login, to find that the self assessment page still says overpayment of £5,000. But on another page within HMRC (Overpayment from tax return for tax year ending 05 Apr 2023) it says £2,000 all of a sudden, where before it says £5,000.
Has anyone seen this before, as it makes zero sense when checking the other screens. There's nowhere in the portal that would state a sudden drop of that amount?
