Most people have a Personal Allowance – an annual amount of tax-free income. The rates of Income Tax you pay depend on how much taxable income you have above your allowance.

|Personal Allowance||2015 – 2016 Tax Year|
|Age 65 to 74 – Personal Allowance||£10,500|

If you are born before 1948
If your income is between £26,100 and £100,000 in the 2013 to 2014 tax year, your Personal Allowance goes down by £1 for every £2 of income above £26,100, to a minimum Personal Allowance of £9,440.
You may also be able to claim Married Couple’s Allowance.
Income over £100,000
For every £2 your income is above £100,000, your Personal Allowance goes down by £1. If your income is high enough, this can reduce your Personal Allowance to zero.
