Interactive tax code assistance tool released.

14 November 2022

Individuals receive change of tax code notices for many reasons. These reasons may not always be known by the employer, making advice and guidance difficult to offer.

These reasons can be:

  • the individual starts to get income from additional job or pension
  • the individual’s employer tells us they have started or stopped getting benefits from their job
  • the individual gets taxable state benefits
  • the individual claims marriage allowance
  • the individual claims expenses they get tax relief on.

To assist individuals in accessing the correct information, based on their needs and situation, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has released an interactive tool. The ‘get help understanding your tax code tool’ will help the user understand the reasons for the change and what next steps can be taken.
