I have been assessed for maintainance and they are using an expense that is not taxed that i receive for sleeping in my truck as part of my wage. They have declared my take home pay is different from my disposable income by the sum of £20.
HiYou can seek a review of the CSA decisionhttp://www.csa.gov.uk/en/case/requesting-a-review.aspPlease press accept
Am i correct in thinking that they cannot include untaxed money in the assessment
If it is untaxed income the it should not be included in the assessmentPlease press accept
Could you suggest a course of action if they persist with using the untaxed money in the assessment.
You will have to go through a review and seek the basis of their decision backed by lawPlease press accept
