Tell the Tax Office

The tax position of older people and widows can be very complicated. So it is important that you should contact the tax office if you think that you are not being given the correct allowances.

In particular, people over eighty should check that they are being given the new over eighties' allowance and people whose income may have been high enough for them to lose the age allowance in the past should check that it is being applied correctly this year.

Married women with their own pension should check that this is being offset against their wife's earned income allowance.
