i could do with some advice on this issue and what to do about this money owing to the tax office. My son did do some part time work, 2 hrs a day for 18months, however he had to finish as it was causing him too much pain. My son never paid any tax on this income, 6 months of the work period he was in supported work. He continued to get his DLA and ESA. Then we received a form from the tax office as if he was self employed. I completed it and explained that he was not self employed he worked for the local council for 10 hours a week and earned under £70 per week. Since that time he hasn't been able to work due to his walking difficulties and other problems associated with his cerebral palsy. He has received today a letter from HM Revenue, Self Assessment Statement saying he owes, £546.48! I can't understand how this is possible. Could anyone explain to me how I can make the tax office understand this is impossible for him to owe such an amount.
