In April 2015, the UK Government introduced Marriage Tax Claims, an all-new income tax break for married couples and civil partners.
Marriage Tax Claims allows the lower earner within the marriage or civil partnership to transfer £1,250 of their unused Personal Allowance to their higher-earning partner. Doing this will reduce the higher earner’s income tax bill by up to £250 per year.
One of parties to the marriage or civil partnership (so either you or your partner) will need to have an annual income of less than the Personal Allowance for the Tax Year(s) in which you wish to claim.
Marriage Tax Claims is an elective tax break, meaning that eligible couples will not receive the tax break unless a claim is made. If no claim for Marriage Tax Claims is made, the taxpayer’s entitlement is simply written off, and the funds retained by the Government.
The Government has been widely criticised by experts for failing to publicise the Marrriage Allowance tax break properly. It has been widely documented that more than one million married couples in Britain are missing out on the £900 marriage tax break. It was as a direct result of this Governmental failure to publicise Marriage Tax Claims that the Trusted Tax Claims service was introduced.

Marriage Tax Claims exists to raise awareness of help UK married couples (and couples in formal civil partnerships) benefit from Marriage Tax Claims, a tax break introduced by HM Treasury in 2015.
HM Treasury’s decision to introduce Marriage Tax Claims follows a trend in policymaking towards raising the threshold at which low earners have to start paying tax. In addition to ongoing rises in the annual Personal Allowance, HM Treasury’s introduction of Marriage Tax Claims serves to extend the highest earning partner’s Personal Allowance by as much as £1,250 per year.
