Once your Income Tax has been calculated, you can use this service to check how much you paid from 6 April 2020 to 5 April 2021.
HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) calculates everyone’s Income Tax between June and October.
This service is also available in Welsh (Cymraeg).
Before you start
Signing in also takes you to your personal tax account, where you can find other HMRC services.
What you’ll need
You’ll need your Government Gateway user ID and password. If you do not have a user ID, you can create one when you check your Income Tax.
You’ll need your National Insurance number and one of the following:
- a valid UK passport
- details of your Tax Credits payments
- a P60 from your employer for the last tax year
- a payslip from the last 3 months
Making more than one card payment
HMRC will limit the number of times you can use a credit or debit card within a certain time to pay your tax.
There is not a set limit - it depends on HMRC’s view of what’s reasonable based on payment card industry standards and guidance.
Check for other years
There’s a different way to check how much Income Tax you’re paying this tax year.
For the 2019 to 2020 tax year and earlier, use the tax checker to work out how much you should have paid.
Get a refund or pay tax you owe
You may also be able to use this service to get a tax refund or pay tax you owe. You’ll need a tax calculation letter (a ‘P800’) that says you can do this online.
You can only pay by credit card if it’s linked to a business bank account. There’s a fee.
