Taxed too much

I'm new

Hi, 
I currently applied for a new job. The job accidentally ticked the wrong box and now I am being taxed way too much! They said there is nothing they can do about it until the end of the financial year. I was wondering if those changes could be made on my end because this is way out of hand... 


Kind Regards, 
alvin

Hi @alvinrebello,

 

Sorry to hear about your situation.

 

Your employer should be able to change the amount of withholding throughout the year. You may be able to prompt them to make the changes by filling out a new withholding declaration form and giving it to them.

 

Hope this helps! Thanks, NateH

Hi alvinrebello,

 

Your employer can change it whenever they like... it's a box in their payroll software that they need to alter - takes them all of 25 seconds.

 

Don't take any **bleep** from your employer about it.
