Up to 100,000 overpaid tax, admits HMRC

As many as 100,000 could have paid too much tax

Up to 100,000 workers have paid too much tax after problems with PAYE coding,
the taxman has admitted.

With problems arising from bringing together two PAYE databases,
HM Revenue
& Customs
has admitted that it has received 50,000 calls
relating to PAYE coding errors, and estimates as many as 100,000 have an
incorrect code.

HMRC told the Telegraph that its call centres were exceptionally
busy.

“HMRC bosses need to take a close look at whether they are adequately
resourced for the future,” CioT tax policy director John Whiting told the paper.
