The Inland Revenue is this week encouraging encourage schoolchildren, pensioners and other people on low incomes to claim back tax that may have been deducted from their savings.

In an unusual role, the Revenue will be giving money away rather than collecting it at shopping centres, libraries, community centres, and other public places, as well as schools, and homes for elderly people.

Paymaster general Dawn Primarolo, said: ‘This is a major customer service initiative by the Inland Revenue. It will help to make sure that people do not pay more tax than they need to.’

Othertargets of the scheme include people who pay tax despite earning below the taxable limit.

The Revenue has a tax back web page which can be accessed at www.inlandrevenue.gov.uk/taxback
