Check your Income Tax for the current year

This service covers the current tax year (6 April 2022 to 5 April 2023). Use the service to:

  • check your tax code and Personal Allowance
  • see if your tax code has changed
  • tell HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) about changes that affect your tax code
  • update your employer or pension provider details
  • see an estimate of how much tax you’ll pay over the whole tax year
  • check and change the estimates of how much income you’ll get from your jobs and pensions

You cannot check your Income Tax for the current year if Self Assessment is the only way you pay Income Tax.

Before you start

To check your Income Tax, you’ll need to sign in to your personal tax account using your Government Gateway user ID and password.

If you do not have a personal tax account

You need a Government Gateway user ID and password to set up a personal tax account. If you do not already have a user ID you can create one when you sign in for the first time.

You’ll need your National Insurance number or postcode and 2 of the following:

  • a valid UK passport
  • a UK photocard driving licence issued by the DVLA (or DVA in Northern Ireland)
  • a payslip from the last 3 months or a P60 from your employer for the last tax year
  • details of a tax credit claim if you made one
  • details from a Self Assessment tax return (in the last 2 years) if you made one
  • information held on your credit record if you have one (such as loans, credit cards or mortgages)
