Mrs P smith position.
Your letter says it should be 942T.
The only position I hold currently is
The Community of St Marys.The code on my payslip is 1250T
Your letter says it is 942T.
I hate dealing with finances and not sure what I am supposed to do here and don't want to speak to an accountant as I can't afford to.
What am I to do?
Please respond asap as I need to get this sorted.
Many thanks.

We are not HM Revenue & Customs! Try setting up your own personal tax account with HMRC and contact HMRC to correct your coding. It may be that you have two jobs and your allowances are being allocated elsewhere.
