I am a retired teacher who does a bit of writing. I paid my January tax (£600) a few weeks ago. I had a letter today saying that I owe £725,000 for next year, with the first instalment of £242,000 payable a week ago.- WHAT? I spent an hour on hold on the phone but never got picked up. Chris Craggs

Hi ChrisCraggs,

We would not be able to advise where this amount came from without checking your tax account.
