Weird one. I have rental income that generated £2,000 in tax owed for tax year 22-23. That tax is being collected through tax adjustment on my salary from full time job on Jan, Feb, March pay (no problems with this) I've just received tax code for April 2024 onwards, and HMRC are collecting the same 2,000 again thru adjustments for "tax owed from previous" years. Is this someone has seen before? I am not sure where I can challenge this. Happy (!!) to pay my taxes... just not twice. Any advice appreciated.

Just adding to my own query - would the 2024/2025 tax code form assume that I had not paid the 2,000 and it remains on my tax record until it has been cleared (in April 2024 payroll) and at that point it is then removed from 2024/2025 tax code?

Hi yossarian70,
When your 2022/23 Self Assessment was received your 2023/24 tax code would have been amended to include the rental income going forward.
We would use the 2022/23 figure as an estimate for 2023/24.
The tax being deducted for your rental income is for the 2023/24 tax year not the 2022/23 balancing payment.
The 2022/23 balance will be collected in your 2024/25 tax code therefore not being paid twice. 
Thank you.

The balancing payment from your 2022/23 Self Assessment of £2000 would still be collected in the 2024/25 tax code.
The underpayment being collected in your 2023/24 tax code is for the estimated property income included for 2023/24.
If you do not want the property income included in your tax code you can contact HMRC to remove Self Assessment: general enquiries

Thank you
