The 2020-21 tax return has been amended by HMRC from the Scottish rate of income tax to the England and Northern Ireland rate with the comment 'I have corrected your Self Assessment for your Income Tax Residency status in line with information we hold'. I have had a Scottish address for the entire tax year (which has always been up to date with HMRC) and would like to know what I should have done to update my record with HMRC correctly.

If there is any change to your personal details you can report this here:

Tell HMRC about a change to your personal details   .

Thank you.

Thank you for your response however I am not sure that any of the options in that link relate to the situation. The address is correct and doesn't need changing.

If the address was already correct then there would not have been anything further you could have done, it sounds like an issue of
our system not identifying that you would have been a Scottish taxpayer for the year, which it normally does at the time of any address change.

Thank you.
