Tax Rebates & Refunds

Chase rebates rather than waiting for a surprise cheque

A tax rebate is a real asset but it is usually something of a surprise too. People place quite a lot of trust in the mechanics of the tax system and they expect that as soon as issues arise the computer systems used will identify the issue and generate a rebate if that particular case warrants it. However, it’s not always quite as simple as all that.

The truth is that it takes time for these things to happen depending on the information the computer systems used by the HMRC actually have access to. Every now and again the level of misinformation is enough to mean that the computer system doesn’t recognise that any tax rebate is necessary to be generated, in which case the whole thing is just glossed over completely.

Instead of thinking of tax rebates as lovely surprises, the best advice is to actually keep a tighter control over your finances and to seek out a rebate if your calculations suggest that you have paid too much. You cannot necessarily rely on the HMRC to do all the work on your behalf.
