My tax code notice under "This is how we worked out your tax code(s)" states that my Personal Allowance is £12 570, then Less State Pension of £10 244 Go to Note 2. Note 2 explains that the tax on the state pension is taken via reduction in the Personal Allowance and then states "We have reduced your tax-free amount by the estimated amount of pension we think you will receive this year". However I only receive 6 months State Pension in this tax year, the estimate should say £5 122.
It appears that others above have the same query and I may be daft but I don't understand the response that the code is only an emergency code and only 1/12 per month will be taken. Must be old age but could you attempt again to explain what this means. Many thanks.
