Tax Bill

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by sk8rsapper, Oct 13, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I have just read with interest that there may be some form of Tax rebate for serving soldiers on tour.

    When I did my bit on Telic 2 I got home to find I had a tax bill of £2636 thanks to RTMC and the wrong tax code being used. The only way to make the pain go away was to write a cheque for the said amount.

    That was almost 500 quid for each month in the sun.

    Has anyone else had any tax issues following mobilisation ?

    Ps. This is my first ever post so do be gentle with me?

    Yes, but not anywhere near as much as 2.6k.. I think they paid my tax free allowance twice in the year so I'm on a "pay lots back" tax code this year. Think it's only to the tune of a couple of hundred, but it's still annoying.
