​Tax & Benefits Service

​Income tax debt caused by a self-assessment error

A client came to our Tax & Benefits service asking for assistance with an Income Tax debt of approximately £4,000. The client had a long history of mental health issues and had experienced a very unsettled period in her life due to homelessness. Once the client obtained a fixed abode, she started to receive letters demanding payment of the debt but had no understanding of how the debt had arisen.
