I've just been given a tax rebate of £260 for the cost of a 2nd Class stamp and many of YOU are owed money too!
As uniformed public servants, you are entitled to an allowance in order to maintain your uniform, however, many are not getting this. Even if you're not in-service anymore (such as myself) you can still claim for up to 5 years worth of expenses. Time for Mr. Taxman to stump up!
I urge all of you to read this and apply - you can even claim for your second job (e.g. if you work for Asda on the shop floor, that is also a "uniform" you are wearing).http://www.moneysavi...form-tax-rebate
My letter simply asked for a cheque for uniform expenses + all my dates of service (Police and Territorial Army).
1 month later and I got a load of tax documents from HMRC... and a lovely looking cheque
