Do you know how much tax you'll pay this year? Thanks to HMRC's new tax calculator it's now much easier for you to find out.
If you have relatively simple tax affairs (you can check the HMRC website for criteria) you'll be able to use the Simple Tax Calculator.
This will show you how much Income Tax and National Insurance you'll pay in total, and how much money you'll get to take home.
If you have more complex tax affairs there's an Advanced Tax Calculator that will show you the same.
Whichever version you use you'll get a detailed breakdown that shows how the government will spend your money - it's really quite eye opening and definitely worth checking out!
You can access the Tax Calculator on the HMRC website and also download it as an app from iTunes or Google Play.
