Military Tax Refunds
Our partners at RIFT, who hold the Armed Forces Gold Award, are specialists in securing tax refunds, the average sum reimbursed being £3,000. Serving and former military personnel can claim Armed Forces tax refunds for travel and mileage expenses in the last 4 years, including postings of under 24 months.
It’s important to realise that military tax refunds aren’t some “dodge” around the tax rules or a prize you can win. Tax refunds are your legal right, and the money you get back is simply a repayment of tax you shouldn’t have paid in the first place. You can read the letter DIN ‘2015DIN01-005’ the MOD sent to RIFT for assurance that Armed Forces tax refunds are 100% permitted.
RIFT Armed Forces Team
At RIFT, many members of their Armed Forces teams come from military backgrounds and families. They understand the many unique challenges of Armed Forces life, and know the demands it places on you.
The rules around Armed forces tax refund claims are complex in places, but RIFT’s specialists’ understanding of them is always up to date and to-the-letter. Use their free online military tax refund calculator for an instant estimate of what you could claim.
