Want to make some easy cash? 

Married? 

Stay at home parent or earn under £11,000?

Well One of the very few perks of being married these days is the ability to transfer your unused tax allowance over to your husband/wife/civil partner this can reduce the tax they pay by up to £220 in a tax year, so just over £18 a month, which don’t sound a lot but ‘every bit helps’ as Tesco say. 

The best bit is if you were eligible for Marriage Allowance in the 2015 to 2016 tax year, you can backdate your claim to 6 April 2015. So A nice little rebate worth around £220.
