Thanks for your question

Could you advise how much your teachers pension is - and any other incomes you may have - with the amounts (such as employment,self employment.state pension, pensions of investment income)

I also would need you date of birth - to establish whether you are due age related allowances

My pension will be £44,590.My date of birth is 13-04-1953

Thanks for the additional information

As you are not yet 65 (way off yet!) you will only be due the basic personal allowances.

So Pension £44590
Less Tax free 6475
Liable to tax 38115
Liable to 20% tax 37400 x 20% = £7480.00
Liable to 40% tax 715 x 40% = £ 286.00

Total tax due per year £7766 and per month £647.16

I'm sorry I have given you the wrong figures!! the £44 590 was my "lump sum"!!

could you please work out the tax on my annual pension of £14,863 ?!!

Expert:  Sam replied 6 years ago.

Thats not a problem !

Annual Pension £14863
Less Allowances 6475
Liable to tax 8388 x 20% = £1677.60 a year
So £139.80 a month
