What tax can police officers claim back?
Allowances police workers can claim for:
Police Federations Subscriptions – HMRC have an agreement with the Police Federation that tax relief is available for 100% of the cost. Unless you are an Officer of the Metropolitan Police as there is an agreed arrangement whereby subscriptions are taken from source and no tax is deducted. Learn more about claiming tax relief on subscriptions.
Using your own vehicle – If you travel outside your normal commute to and from work you could be eligible for up to 45p per mile. Learn more about claiming mileage allowance relief.
Police dog handlers – If your dog lives at home with you and you use your own vehicle to transport your dog to work and to the nearest suitable place to exercise your dog you may be eligible claim mileage.
It’s a very simple and straight forward process. Once you have made your claim HMRC will adjust your tax code to include the expenses. This will then continue in to any future years’ tax codes whilst in the same employment. This will save a considerable amount of money for long serving Police Officers.
