  • High Income Child Benefit - tax repayment is higher than the actual benefit

    I have completed a draft of my self-assessment and the figure for Tax repayable is higher than the actual benefit received. It's only £26 higher, but surely the tax should only be as much as the child benefit received? The auto calculation for child benefit was slightly off so I put in corrected figures (it balances out, just not over the actual tax year). The tax return is based on figures on the P60 and a very small amount of untaxed bank interest, so I don' think anything else could be affecting it. Any suggestions? Might it change when the tax return is submitted? Thanks.
