Ok, the following has to apply to you.
That's you? Good, time to get some money back AND have your tax code changed so that you pay less tax every year! Here is the template letter and the all important address which for some reason seems to be hidden from everyone on the internet. Copy and paste this into your word processor and post it away, and in a few weeks once HMRC have processed it you will pay a different tax code on your wages and will be recompensed either through your wages or by cheque for the amount, but this will ONLY DATE BACK THE LAST 6 YEARS.
