TOPIC: 60% tax

60% tax 2 weeks 6 days ago #101886

Fuming Tonight,

Having been told by a caller at CSA/CMA, that Deduction of earning is taken before tax I worked out my income and how I’m going to pay the bills. Turns out this is wrong!!!

It’s actually taken after tax. So
I pay 40% tax, and as it’s a DEO on direct pay, they then take another 20%

This leaves me with 54% of my gross pay, and barely enough to cover the bills.

For my ex who earns a tidy sum, plus what I pay it’s all fine!!

I don’t understand why outgoings and other parties income aren’t taken into account

No, had a family based arrangement, paid consistently until my income fell to a point that I couldn’t pay.

Got a new job, and she went straight to them and said I hadn’t paid ( even though we agreed an arrangement) they went straight to DEO, despite uploading 2.5 years bank statements, wage slips and text messages.

I now owe 4.8k in arrears, receive only 46% of my gross income. And having been taxed at 40% because of how much I earn they add 20% onto it.

Disgraceful. I feel for you mate, the courts are happy to enforce child maintenance payments but will not enforce contact orders.

They wont go on a DEO straight away as the case opens, so you must of had a case for a while? This doenst make sense.

Just reread my original post, yes we had a direct pay case open,

We agreed a family based arrangement, she failed to inform them, and get the case closed.

So where we’d verbally agreed to reduce payments for the benefit of the children. So things came from me and not her.

She’s used it as a beating stick at her leasure to screw me over

So she is claiming you have not been paying the correct CMS amount that they gave you? And you have reduced payments as you had a verbal agreement to reduce them?

Did you not know the case was open? Did you not have an annual review?

i understand CMS have complaints procedure/a tribunal system. you could try take that route to clear yourself. if they dont listen, you should speak to your local MP/councillor.
