An ex employer (well known supermarket)wants to reclaim £87 which it claims it over paid me.
A little back ground information ..
. I left after receiving a large bill from the tax office of just under £1700 as my employer had not been deducting the money from my wages, something I should have noticed I hold my hands up the that.
When I joined them I was placed on emergency tax correctly then the code changed I thought it had been sorted.
What they failed to do was take my pension into consideration when the code was set.
They were made fully aware that I had retired from the fire service and was receiving a pension.
After receiving the tax bill 2015/16 which i obviously had to pay, I still face another for 2016/17.
..my position with the supermarket had become unworkable so i left.
I feel very agreived over the tax bills and now the supermarket are chasing me for £87 they claim they over played me in my final salary, via their solicitor!
Should I pay or let them take me to court?
