I don't normally get taxed as earn under £166 a week work part time
I have been doing overtime an extra 8 hours a week
I was taxed £20 on £820 last month
How much would i be taxed on £780 ?

Tax code 1256 l

Whatever you get taxed, should be refunded later as it sounds like the overtime won't take you over the tax allowance for the whole year, unless it is permanent and maybe increases too.

Probably about £18 for this month but that's just a guess.

It sounds like you paid NI rather than tax OP. It kicks in at about £719 a month whereas you tax code gives you about £1047 a month in tax free pay.

On a tax code of 1256L you can earn £1047.41 per month before you pay tax.

For NI you can earn £719 per month before you pay NI. Everything over that amount is 12%

Are you paid four weekly rather tHan monthly though? As the figures I gave above would be slightly different in that case

I was £60 over this month for national insurance

You shouldn’t be taxed as you are under the 11k threshold. Only national insurance should be deducted an not that much either
