You can claim back tax for up to the last 6 years. When I did it I just phoned the tax office told them I wanted to claim and they sent me a few cheques.

But I know what you mean about seeing it in print.

Also, I've just seen a spinal fusion on tv. Thank god I did not have that done last year, although hearing the drill was gross because that sound happened during my surgery. Blegh.

Also do you know if you can claim back some of the NI-A? They've taken quite a lot for that as well (like over 200) and I'm having trouble finding out how much they should take.

Why does no one teach you these things at school.
