Your tax and long-term care calculation
You will have filed a tax return for the previous calendar year where you confirmed all your income and any deductions or allowances.
We then send your calculation showing how much tax and long-term care you have been charged, based on your tax return.
Understanding your tax calculation
The front page is a summary of your tax and long-term care. The second page shows you how the tax and long-term care has been worked out.
The calculation includes your allowances and deductions and the two different tax and long-term care calculations, standard rate and marginal rate. You will always pay the lower tax calculation.
You should check the information on the calculation to make sure the income and allowances are correct.
There is a mistake in the figures
If there is a mistake, you can tell us by using the personal tax enquiry form.

Your income is mainly from employment
You should have paid what's due when you receive your assessment. If you do have anything left to pay, it will show how much you owe.
Any tax you owe will usually be included as part of your ITIS rate for this year.
Your income is mainly from employment, but you also have other sources of income (for example pensions or investments)
You'll have paid some of your tax through your ITIS payments, but these payments will not cover all your tax.
You will need to pay any balance before the 30 November payment deadline.
Paying tax if you're employed
Your income is mainly from pensions, self-employment or other non-salary sources
You will have made your first payment on account by 30 November the previous year.
Depending on the date, you may need to make your second payment on account which is due by 31 May.
Any remaining balance must be paid by 30 November.
You will also receive a payment on account notice for your next two payments on account for the current year's tax.
Paying tax if you work for yourself or you've retired
If you pay tax then you will also pay long-term care. This is a social security fund that helps people who need help with basic activities for the rest of their life.
About the long-term care scheme
Making a payment
If there is any outstanding tax for the year, you'll need to make a payment when you receive your notice of assessment if:
pay tax by salary deductions
only a small amount of your total income is a salary
- your salary deductions were not enough to fully pay the full amount of tax due and the amount hasn't been included as part of your ITIS rate.
Any balance should be paid by 30 November.
What happens if you pay your tax bill late
