    Tax codes 9th Mar 18 at 9:10 PM
    In previous years HMRC have advised me of my new income tax code. I was paying money back on the 2017/ 2018 code and my code should revert back to normal next financial year. haven't received the 2018/ 2019 tax code yet. Has something changed at HMRC.

    Ask your employer if they have received your new code.
    I never used to get a notification if it was normal which it usually was
    make the most of it, we are only here for the weekend.
    and we will never, ever return.

    The simple way to find out is to log into your tax account. See dori2o's post.

    you are now expected to look at your personal tax account online to check such mundane issues as tax codes rather than HMRC having to spend our tax money on sending out bits of paper

    That might be the hope but it's not the expectation yet. I have used the personal tax account to check my State Pension details but don't use it for tax related stuff and I've received a paper notice of coding recently for 2018:19.

    I think you have to proactively sign up to getting things just via the Personal Tax Account, the default position is still sending bits of paper out.

    But as McKneff says, only if your tax code differs from the standard - I've not had a paper notice of coding for years (apart from the one time I actually rang up HMRC and asked them to send me one for proof of ID purposes)

    I used to get my PAYE coding every year but it never came for this year (2017/2018), and I haven't received one for this coming year yet (2018/2019), however others in the household have received theirs' for both years


    Historically I would have panicked, but have now come to the conclusion that once I receive my April pay slip it will have my coding on that and if I doesn't look correct I will investigate with both HMRC and my employer.
