Tax Help for Older People provides free, confidential help to those over 60 or near retirement who are struggling to understand or manage their tax affairs and who cannot afford to pay for help from elsewhere. Whether it is a letter from HMRC that you don’t understand, a self assessment form you are struggling with or piling debts that have got out of hand, we can help you and can speak to HMRC on your behalf if needed.

You can contact Tax Help using our national helpline on 01308 488066 or by email to taxvol@taxvol.org.uk and most queries can be dealt with this way. For more complex matters, we can arrange for a face to face appointment with one of our network of over 400 tax volunteers located across the UK.

All of our advice and help will be specific to your own circumstances and alongside making sure you are paying the right amount of tax, we can also check that you are getting any allowances that you may be due. So many of those we help are not even aware of the allowances available to them and they can be back dated, making it very worthwhile to claim them if you are eligible.

Finally, there is a wealth of information on the Tax Help website at www.taxvol.org.uk, including our guides on dealing with tax after bereavement, pensions tax and a tax health check guide.
