PLEASE NOTE: The charity TaxAid advises only those people on low incomes whose problems cannot be resolved with HMRC.

When you are struggling to cope

When you are struggling to cope

Sometimes the tax system can put you under pressure.  With other stresses and strains of life, you may be struggling to cope, and things can be made worse if you, or a close friend or relative, have ill-health or mental health problems. In this section we look at:

  • Having someone help you
  • HMRC: special services, Charter, and making a complaint
  • Dealing with tax debt
  • Dealing with tax enquiries
  • TaxAid’s service for those with mental health issues or severe physical health issues

If you cannot find the information you need on the TaxAid website, and you are on low income, you may prefer to speak to one of our tax advisers who will explain the rules that apply to you.

The pages in the menu to the right of this page give some brief information about how to manage these issues.
