  • SEISS 4th Grant taxation period

    SEISS 4th Grant covers the period of 01/02/2021 to 30/04/2021, meaning it falls between 2 tax year periods. 2/3rds aprox in 20/21 and 1/3rd in 21/22. Because the Grant was paid in late April HMRC says this must be reported under the 21/22 self assesment year. My question is, why should I pay for 14 months of earnings in 21/22 but only 10 months in 20/21? Because of this injustice, with my low income, I now have to pay more tax due to more of my earnings falling into the next tax bracket. There must be millions of people in the same situation and this is an unlawful way of taking yet more tax from the people in this country.
