  1. I thought I would update you all so far about how things have been going on my end with the Tax Man namely HMRC. I phoned them and explained my plight and they are sending me a breakdown of the charges etc. In the meantime I took it upon myself to get my daughter who is a Chartered Accountant to go through this for me and see if she can see something that I can't because I don't understand these figures etc. She found that last year I paid back £415.00 to HMRC and they had not taken this in account and had added it on to the £957.00 I now owe, she also asked me why ESA had sent me a Tax refund of £398.00? I replied that I have no idea as I was upfront and have never ever had another job since leaving the last one. She has asked me to challenge the breakdown when it comes in and send it to her to go through as she says that it is the Tax Mans fault and not mine even though as individuals we are responsible for our own Tax Coding if we feel it is wrong. I have to be honest with everyone I would not know what my Tax Code should be or should not be here. I asked HMRC if I had to pay it back, how was I to pay it back when I have such a small pension coming in? they told me that they could give me 3 years in exceptional circumstances. I told them that it made no difference because I simply cannot pay. My daughter says that I must draft out a polite letter and state where the anomalies are and also question them about the tax refunds I have been given. I will let you all know the outcome of this.
  2. Thank you honeybee, you have been following my threads from last year with ATOS and I thought that was bad!! I will do as advised and let you know the outcome. I would not be without this forum as it helps me no end.
  3. Thank you very much for your help and advice renegadeimp, I simply am beside myself with worry as I have all my wage slips (I kept them) and my P60 as well as my pension slip every month. I also have a letter advising me of my cease of employment as from July 12th 2012. I paid tax through my employer and it was not up to me to work out the tax it was up to them wasn't it or am I missing something here? I just don't know what to do other than ring HMRC and tell them, prior to my sacking I had been off work for 6 months sick and can prove this too!! that is why I was sacked through a capability dismissal.
  4. Can any cagger help me please? I have not been employed since July 2012 and received ESA of £71.00 per week from July 2012 until November 2012 and it went up to £100.00 per week but in July this year it stopped completely. No more money for ESA. I also received from July 2012 a small pension of £157.00 per month no more. I used to work for a company that sacked me in July 2012 for being sick and I paid my PAYE through them in my wages. I have now been hit with a TAX demand for Underpaid Tax of £975.00. I do not earn any money and do not work and I only receive a pension of £157.00 a month. The Tax man claims I earnt £10,021 between April 2012 and April 2013. I paid TAX when I received my last wage packet every penny of it and have always paid TAX with my previous company. My problem is I am scared because I have no money other than my pension so something has gone wrong but not with me as I genuinely believed my previous company paid enough TAX for me. Please help me someone before I slit my wrists with worry as I cannot pay anything as I have nothing and receive no benefits because my ESA stopped in July this year because it was contribution based.
  5. No i did not Nystagmite, all I did was put in a GL24 in October 2012 and that was that until April 2013 when I was informed I had been placed into the WRAG group. How frustrating is that?
  6. RaeUK I have the exact wording in my letter for you: " Your appeal has been heard by an independent appeal tribunal. The tribunal has decided that you are entitled to Employment Support Allowance". I never knew that this had happened, where, when or anything!!
  7. Thank you coledog for your answer to me, I have put together a letter tonight asking the questions you have raised above as I never attended a Tribunal and never knew one had taken place either until I received my letter of the decision informing me a Tribunal had placed me in the WRAG. I am going to send this out tomorrow and ask for the decision to be looked at again. Yes this is contribution based as I was sacked from my job for being incapable of doing it last July 2012 so that's when I went on ESA at the assessment rate. This will come to an end in July 2013 according to my letter I received last week. I understand this and the reasons which is another argument for being placed in the Support Group. I will keep everyone informed of how I am getting on and if it was not for this forum I think I would have gone completely insane months ago, I am doing this on my own without any help from outside organisations as they always seem to be too busy to help me and overstretched.
  8. Hi CD Thank you for your help. I did not go to Tribunal at all! I appealed on a GL24 and sent it in last October 2012. Lo and behold on April the 19th I was awarded back pay from last October and placed into the WRAG group. I have no letter giving me any points or anything other than the original one which said I had 6 points and was not entitled to ESA at all so I appealed straight away and got it back. I never knew it had been seen by a tribunal until the letter from the DWP stated that it had been seen by one. I can ask for the decision to be looked at again as I now have the evidence provided by my GP today. Is this any good? Any help for me is better than nothing I can tell you it is driving me nuts.
  9. Hi estellyn I have evidence at the time of the ATOS assessment that states that I am on high rate dla mobility and low rate care and the ATOS assessor knew this full well but chose to ignore it. I was told at my full body scan last year before ATOS that I have bad knees and also at my Bone scan. Anyhow to cut a long story short I now find myself in the position whereby I am being put forward for a double knee replacement by my GP due to the recent x-ray results. I cannot walk far and also have a blue badge. My GP is certain of the fact I meet one of the conditions in the support group criteria and so is my pain management consultant who has agreed to place me on Morphine.
  10. Nystagmite I do meet one of those criteria that I have looked at even moreso now. This is a minefield to me though. I am on High Rate Mobility and Low Rate Care of DLA.
  11. Thank you very much RaeUK but I am still unsure of what to do next as I see my GP tomorrow morning again and I have to ask for his help yet again because there is no way I can attend to see a WRAG personal advisor. I realise that I have been deemed fit for some kind of work BUT it still remains that I have been to the hospital and my GP says it is impossible for me to work and my new x-rays demonstrate this quite clearly. I have had a few falls this year which my GP states are all to do with the nerves in my legs also, another reason he says I cannot work. It took my six months to be placed into the WRAG Group but I should have been placed in the Support Group. Where do I go from here? Any help from you fellow caggers would be appreciated.
  12. Hi Everyone I had an ATOS Medical last September and was found fit for work. I appealed last October straight away on a GL24 and last week was awarded WRAG, bu,t and this is the but,I have new evidence come to light to state that I should not at any cost work and my GP supports this. If I appeal again to be placed into the Support Group how do I do this and will I lost my benefit in the meantime that I have just fought for and won? I know that I have to see a personal advisor to continue to receive my benefit but my GP says that this is not possible. Where do I stand now? Any help would be appreciated.
  13. I am in the same position as you and can only sympathise. I too had a medical recently and was deemed fit for work. I too am on Morphine and have various problems etc etc but I am appealing on a GL24 Form and I suggest you do the same too. As long as I have a breath in my body I will do so as I was treated like a robot and nothing else. You are not alone but you are just a number and this government wants to take you off this benefit to make it look good for them. They are nothing but rob dogs.
  14. I have now appealed on form GL24 and also sent in a covering letter plus other medical evidence. Basically the ATOS person was a registered nurse who in her opinion said that I was not unkempt, did understand my medical condition well, could sit in a chair for 18 minutes etc etc, on no occasion did I sit in front of her in a chair for 18 minutes because I couldn't and kept getting up. She stated that I quote "I could return to work within 3 months" but on that basis I was still awarded 6 points and none for the fact that I have several other ailments and in actual fact said I suffer from Lymphoedema which I do not and never said I did!! wrong in actual fact. She never listened to me at all. I do not know how long the appeal process takes but I sent it recorded delivery so that I know that the office has received it and cannot say that they didn't. Now what do I do other than keep on sending in the sick notes which my doctor will supply as I have to go on morphine and be monitored because the consultant said it might need adjusting so that the dose is higher etc. I do appreciate any feedback any one can give me on their experiences of this dreadful situation.
