    Can somebody confirm whether my understanding of what the IR told me
    this morning is correct. I put milage expenses on my P11 as I had
    exceeded 10000 miles but paid the expenses at 40p. The amount invoved
    was £2177.
    Yesterday I got a new coding, it had the expenses payments of £2177
    but an additional £2172.
    I telephoned the IR to query this and communicating in Chinese would
    have been easier. After a very long fraught conversation I gather that
    the IR assume that expenses continue this year at last years rate and
    therefore collect tax on this years expenses on this years code.
    Since I don't expect to exceed 10000 miles this year I will not owe
    any tax. Should I write and tell them so.

    Thanks

    Yes

    Unfortunately the Inland Revenue tend not to read the majority of the
    letters they receive and reply to even less.
