Well that was worth 35 minutes of my time

The cheeky taxman does owe me money.  Apparently I underpaid in 09/10 and overpaid by quite a bit in 10/11.  Despite this they dropped my current tax code from the standard 747L to 457L so that I would pay it back the money I owed the year before.  Idiots!  Now my tax code is going back up to the full amount.  What does that mean?

Well, it means that I should pay roughly £1,000 less tax this year.  And because I've already overpaid for 3-4 months already I should get some more back in over payments.  Unfortunately it won't be in one lump sum, but I am at least going to get my money back.  The thieving gits!

And to top it all off I did it during office hours so got paid for the privilege.
