My payments section from My welfare state panic unemployment payment and Exceptional needs payment. I have payments made as exceptional needs payments so therefore they are not liable to tax. Pup is. The payments I recieved saying ENP are not liable for tax.
I just want to edit and say this is my understanding only, however it could be good argument in court if anyone wants to contest the tax paid for PUP
The payment you received may not be taxed, but these were not PUP payments, so not sure what food would happen if one wanted to go to court. And why would you. It is taxed as any other income.
Exceptional needs payment or whatever it was may not be, but the PUP is subject to income tax.
