The Personal Tax Account is designed to be one stop shop for all customer interactions with HMRC and customers using it can:
check their state pension
complete and return a Self Assessment tax return
update tax credits circumstances as they change throughout the year to prevent under and overpayments
claim an Income Tax refund that will be paid straight into their bank account so they don’t have to wait 14 days for a cheque in the post
check and update their Marriage Allowance.
The Personal Tax Account is one aspect of HMRC’s digital transformation, which aims to create the most digitally advanced tax authority in the world. Accessing yours takes just five minutes and can be done here.
