  • Underpaid tax

    I stopped getting ESA on 31/7/22 & started getting State Pension from 1/822.As my state pension amount is substantially more than I was getting on ESA I expected a new tax code would be sent to me.This didn't happen & I phoned HMRC on 25/10/22 to notify them.I told them that I had already phoned DWP who told me they had automatically notified HMRC of my State Pension details.HMRC told me that they hadn't received this,I called DWP again who insisted they had notified HMRC in August.I am now left with a substantial tax underpayment.I have complained to HMRC about their failure to act in a timely fashion when they received notification from DWP.HMRC insist they still have not received any notification from DWP so will not take the blame. What recourse do I have now as DWP & HMRC are blaming each other for this situation.
