Tax deducted by local council on election earnings

I work as a presiding officer at local and general elections. The council taxes my income before paying me, but my annual income is within the personal allowance. How do I ensure that I get these tax payments back?

Hi Peter, If this is the same situation as the other post this type of income would be classed as PAYE as it is taxed at source. Therefore, when it asks you if you have any employments on the return you would select yes. After this, when filling out the return, you can enter the pay and tax details for this employment and any over-payment of tax will be refunded to you once the calculation has been completed.
