The rules governing how far back you can claim a tax refund for overpaid tax bills are changing soon and that means you are left with very little time to get your claims in.

The time limits for claiming your tax back are changing, from six to four years.

The deadlines differ if you are self assessment tax payer or a PAYE tax payer.

PAYE Tax Payers

The deadlines for PAYE tax payers (and other tax payers that do not self asess) to claim an income tax refund will change soon. You have already missed the 31st January 2010 for the 2003/2004 tax year but you should be aware of deadlines for the next few years. See the table below:

Tax year you want to
claim tax back
Deadline to make
your claim
2003-04 year 31 January 2010
2004-05 year 31 January 2011
2005-06 year 31 January 2012
2006-07 year 31 March 2012
2007-08 year 5 April 2012
2008-09 year 5 April 2013

If you have been on an emergency tax code, worked as a student or worked for only part of a tax year going back to 2004-2005 then you are probably due a rebate. This is because of the way HMRC assign your tax code.

DON’T WAIT FOR THE DEADLINE. We offer a free checking service if you are unsure. Our average income tax refunds are around £500 but can be as much as £1500.

Our fee for this service is 17%+vat of any rebate and we work on a No Win No Fee basis. Download a claim form here or contact us so we can post one out to you.

Self Assessment Tax Payers

If you are a self assessment tax payer you only have until 21st March 2010 to claim for the tax year 2004-2005 and only until 5th April 2010 for the 2005-2006 tax year.

2006-07 year 5 April 2011
2007-08 year 5 April 2012
2008-09 year 5 April 2013

As a self assessment tax payer, overpayment could occur with pension contributions paid late, professional subscriptions or where you have incurred losses that can be claimed against an earlier period.
