    Submitted my online tax return on Sunday, tax rebate in my account on
    Wednesday. Impressed, wish my crowd paid my expenses that quickly.

    In
    Unfortunately you've just reminded me to do mine. Oh well, what's the
    weekend for anyway? :-( Hopefully this time around I won't end up owing
    them several thousand.

    Not wishing to pry into your affair, but it's a topic that's come up
    here before: I'm guessing that a good part of your rebate came from
    the using your own vehicle for work, while shunning a company car.
    The rebates I've had (a few grand a year) have always been down to
    that (while tax I've owed has always been down to investment income
    and share dividends being tax at source at standard not higher rate).

    But yes, I'm also totally impressed with the IR website, and
    speediness of rebate payments hitting the bank.
    I submitted some receipts the other day and got them weighed out, in
    cash, the same day. But the amounts were probably fairly paltry
    compared to the expenses you incur with all the travelling you do.

    I'm really not liable for anything on my return. I'm fully
    non-resident.

    Yeah, but you'll be liable for duty and VAT on anything you bring back
    with you...

    Oh I don't doubt it. I was thinking more in a
    rubber-glove-and-lots-of-lube stylee.

    Not while I have my strength.

    Unless they've got 20 litres of coffee to flush me out with.

    And with the wonder of the split tax year, you can come back whenever
    you like.

    And even if you did, you can bring containerloads of your personal
    possessions back. C&E will check them but as long as the container
    isn't full of brand new boxed DVD players you won't get any hassle.

    Yes, that's the one. Not several grand a year in my case though, about
    700 quid of benefit though which meant I didn't have to pay extra tax on
    health insurance, interest and dividends.

    Unfortunately, after three years of doing this I've got a letter saying
    that they aren't planning to send me tax returns from now on.

    I can feel a stiff letter coming on 'cos it looks like the 04/05 rebate
    should be fairly juicy and there's no fucking way I'm giving that up.
    Well, generally I'm owed between about 500 and 2000 quid at any point in
    time. It's surprising how quickly it mounts up. There's only two
    expenses runs a month which frankly is a bit shite.

    On what fucking grounds? That you continually pay more tax than is due?

    I think it's a general thing. Looks like a circular- doesn't even have
    a fake signature FFS!

    After my shambles earlier in the year, I got a note to tell me I'd
    overpaid by ~£275, and a paying in slip with "amount due £0.00" on it.

    Then I had my coding *reduced*, apparently in anticipation of this
    year's investment income.

    I'm hoping it'll all balance out after I send in this year's return.
