There was a piece in the Daily Mail today concerning relatives who have received a lump sum payment from their husband’s pension scheme and been charged income tax on it. HMRC have now admitted that these payments should be tax free if the person was under 75 years old. ( Going back to 2016). They gave a helpline number 0300 123 1079.
I rang them today and it appears they haven’t read the Daily Mail - I have been asked to send in my paperwork. I just thought that it might affect others on this forum, hence this post.
