Emergency tax is something that the powers that be in the field of tax need to have in place in order to protect themselves and in order to protect the rest of the country in terms of what they contribute. Emergency tax ensures that some contribution is made by those whose details are incomplete or whose details add up in a certain way. The only trouble with the situation is that emergency tax usually represents a figure over and above what those targeted ought to be paying.

It is also very often the case that those targeted have not actually done anything wrong themselves. There has simply been a breakdown in communication somewhere in the chain of events that leads to the Inland Revenue working out a suitable figure of tax to charge each individual.

This means that people are charged emergency tax unfairly from time to time. If this sort of thing happens to you then you can confirm it by checking what the tax code on your payslip actually means. If it turns out to be emergency tax then you need to get in touch with the Inland Revenue either yourself or through a dedicated agency to alter the information and get a refund.
