Marriage Allowance money is now up for grabs

17 July 2015

married-with-children-profile Are you married? Well done you. You must be thrilled and exponentially more lonely as you've irritated everyone on Facebook with your incessant cooing and 3,000 wedding photos that look like everyone else's stupid wedding photos.

Anyway, if you've got married and are earning £10,600 or less in the 2015 to 2016 tax year, you may well be able to reduce your partner's tax by up to £212 thanks to the new Marriage Allowance.

It isn't a huge amount of money, but it is worth getting on it, as basically, it is free money for doing absolutely nothing of note. Tories love people getting married and, in their minds, marriages stop things like riots from happening, so there you go.

So, grab all your personal details ever, and head over to the government's dedicated website for Marriage Allowance and get registered, by clicking here.

If you're married and earn a higher amount than the threshold, then maybe you can sell all those spare toasters you got from your wedding day? If not, maybe you could moan about it and be passive aggressive with your beloved while you shop for matching fleeces?
