Tax expert comments on unclaimed Marriage Allowance

Get prepared to claim for Marriage Tax Allowance; find out how much remains unclaimed and how you can apply for tax relief

Further to recent reports revealing that £1.3billion remains unclaimed in Marriage Tax Allowance, a representative for Nottingham-based tax preparation experts DSR Tax Claims has passed comment. 

Tax expert David Redfern said: "Many hardworking taxpayers aren't aware of the many areas of tax relief they might be eligible to due to a woeful lack of promotion by HMRC and the government, and this lack of quality information is hitting people in the pocket."

The Marriage Allowance tax relief is worth up to £230 per couple per year (if one partner is earning £11,500 or less) and is currently only being claimed by 2.2 million of the 4.2 million eligble taxpayers. 

The findings, which also discovered unclaimed tax relief in other areas such as mileage allowance, were unearthed as a result of a Freedom of Information request by former pensions minister, Steve Webb. 

David Redfern continued: "We at DSR Tax Claims aim to share our expertise with the hardworking taxpayers of the UK, because we know how difficult it is to get good information about UK tax legislation and we are going to change that." He also pointed out that taxpayers need not worry about their unclaimed marriage tax allowance as their claim could still be backdated.
