    Marriage Allowance

    Hi everyone, I have very good news. Received a letter today from HMRC confirming that the request for £212 is no longer applicable as they have revised the calculation for 2015/16 because the marriage Allowance no longer applies. I want to thank you all for the help I received as without your guidance I would not have known what to do. I hope my experience helps someone else who finds themselvea in the same situation as I was. Thank you all again.

    Hi Slick132,thanks for your reply. Your right I shouldn't have contacted them but because I hadn't had any acknowledgement from the letter I sent them I panicked especially as I should have paid the £212 by today. I'll wait now until I hear from them as you have advised. I expect I'll receive a reminder shortly and when I do I'll come back for advice. Thank you for all you help.

    Hi Guys, I have an update. I sent the letter off to HMRC by recorded delivery and it was received by them on 18th May. As the deadline for paying the £212 was today, I decided to phone them as I hadn't received a reply. The letter was on the system but hadn't been actioned and they had until 27th June to deal with it. However,I had a long chat with the advisor and he agreed that they shouldn't have allowed the Marriage Allowance to go through. He has "pulled" the letter and will deal with it over the next few days. Although I'm not sure if he then has to give his report to the complaints dept or he will deal with the whole thing. I'll come back with another update once I hear anything.

    Do I need to contact HMRC and bring to their attention that I was never eligible to apply for Marriage Allowance according to the rules on the government website. If they still say they can't cancel it, then appeal. If I do need to appeal how do I do that.

    Update: I have now received the letter from HMRC requesting payment by 30th May.

    Marriage Allowance

    Hi Slick132, I have read up on Marriage Allowance from the gov website as you suggested and according to that whoever is transferring must have no earnings or income under £11500 and partners income is between £11501 and £45000. These figures are for this financial year but I've worked out for last 2 years personal allowance. 2015/16 personal allowance £10600 My income - £19323.36 Husband - £ 6399.79 As my income was over £10600 the transfer should not have been allowed. Although my husband could have transferred to me. 2016/17 personal allowance £11000 My income - £ 6890.44 Husband - £10691.16 Although my income was under £11000 so was my husbands and therfore the transfer shouldn't have been allowed. 2017/18 personal allowance £11500 My income - £ 6890.44 Husband - £10861.80 Again I would say the transfer should not be allowed as my husbands income is less than £11500. On the p800 it said I will receive a letter shortly giving me options on how to make the payment. Thank you for all your help. ConsumerDude thank you for your reply to my problem. When I was told they couldn't reverse it as the computer system will not allow them to do it I did say that surely someone higher up could manually do this and was again told no they cannot reverse it and higher up were the I.T. Guys and they would not do it.

    Marriage Allowance

    Thank you slick132 and Ericsbrother for your replies. For the financial year 2015/16 my total taxable income was £19323.36 a BR tax code was used on £18825.00 of this amount and I received a refund of £2020.28. The £18825.00 was the amount taxable after 25% tax free amount was deducted from lump sum pension. My husbands income for 2015/16 was £6399.79. For financial year 2016/17 my total income was £6391.84 and my husbands was £10691.16. Slick132, they want the £212 paid direct as I'm not a taxpayer. When I spoke to hmrc regarding the overpayment of tax for 2015/16 I asked if I was entitled to transfer some of my personal allowance to my husband as he was taking out his personal pensions and we didn't know if this would take him over the tax threshold. Hmrc said that yes I could transfer the allowance to my husband and this would start for 2016/17. As you can see from his 2016/17 income he was under it. Both myself and my husband are disabled so unable to work. I am able to pay the £212. I was obviously very naive about this marriage Allowance. My mistake. Hope all this makes sense. Thank you.

    Thank you so much reallybadwoman for your help. I'll send a letter to hmrc as you suggested and see what their response is. One more question I hope you can help with. Do I need to pay the £212 now even though I am disputing it. Thank you.

    Marriage Allowance

    I applied for the Marriage allowance for tax year 2016/17 so my husband would benefit from it. Three weeks ago on signing into my hmrc personal account there was a message for me saying that I was entitled to have the allowance backdated for the years 2015/16 and any refund due would be sent to my husband. 2 days ago I received a P800 from hmrc starting that I owed £212 tax for 2015/16.i phoned them and was told that when they backdated the allowance to my husbands account it brought me over my personal allowance and that my husband didn't need the allowance for that period because he was under the threshold for income tax. I asked if this could be reversed and was told no as the computer system does not allow them to go back previous years,even though they were able to access those years when transferring the allowance that wasn't needed. Is there anything at all I can do about this. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
