    Hello @debbieroberts and welcome to the community.

    Depending on what your partner is earning this may be correct. I would suggest ringing the scope helpline to discuss your situation as they may be able to offer some suggestions.

    If you are married or in a civil partnership you may be able ask for part of your personal tax allowance to be transferred to your partner, who will pay less in taxes. See https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/news/family/2015/02/couples-now-able-to-register-to-shift-unused-tax-allowance-between-spouses


    As an individual I stood alone.
    As a member of a group I did things.
    As part of a community I helped to create change!
