Find out what your tax code is, and query it with Inland Revenue is pretty much your only option.

Skarlet's right! But what tax code has your employer got, and where did they get it from?

As for when you get paid time and a half, honestly, none of us can answer that - my company pays monthly in arrears, but the pay periods are stuck on the wall, so everybody knows what they're paid for. Everybody on PP will have a different answer - you need to ask your company. Don't be nervous! :)

Sounds like you were put on a BR code which means you don't get any allowances like you would with an L code. For example, the standard tax code is 647L which means that you can earn £6475 a year tax free which is split into x amount per week, month or what fequency you are paid. A BR code taxes all of your earnings without any allowances, at 20%. This is normally used for people with more than 1 job in which this is the 2nd job (as they would've already used their tax free allowance in their first/main employment) or those who receive a pension but wish to work. If this isn't your 2nd job, I'd ask your employer how they managed to work that out! Hope this makes sense!

It may be that you might not be able to get it all refunded in your next pay packet, but I would query the tax code you have with the inland revenue. This will prevent you being further taxed on your future wages. You can then send a copy of your 2009/2010 p60 to the inland revenue, and although you won't be able to get it back til april 2010, you will get back all the tax you have paid this tax year, if you continue to earn the same amount you do now.

If you earn £64 a week you shouldn't really be getting taxed, that's roughly what I earned with with my part time job at uni and I was never taxed.
Speak to your employer about it and see what they said, and find out the tax office for your company and give them a call and see if you are entitled for a refund.
