Makes no difference at all - there aren't different tax codes for people in different circumstances!

The only thing you can do is claim your Tax Credits (if you dare!).

Your tax code should be the standard 503L meaning you can earn £5,035 a year before paying tax or NI on your salary.

 

As a single dad you should be entitled to tax credits, and that will be paid directly to you, so it won't affect your tax code.

Old thread but new query.

 

I am a single person and my tax code is 356T. I thought that meant I could earn £3,560 before paying tax. What happened to the £11,500 (roughly) we could earn before tax

 

I'm confused. I've tried ringing tax office and it was a recorded message asking me to speak my problem, I got very frustrated and hung up. Is it possible to speak to a human being anymore?

 

Fed up.....someone please help me

You should have had a notice of coding through the post which would explain how your tax code was calculated...

Could it be benefits in kind that cause this?

In Englad your code usually finishes with an L for a basic single persons allowance. The T suffix means that you have items on your record that need to be reviewed by the tax inspectors.

 

Have you recently changed jobs? Just started work for the first time, anything like that? Have you just got a P6 coding notice through the post at all?

 

You will need to speak to the office, you will need your last P60 and/or P45 if appropriate and your NI.
