If you claim Tax Credits, don’t forget that you need to renew your claim and to do this you need to know your annual income. HMRC uses this information to check you received all the money you were entitled to in the previous year, and to make sure your payments for the year ahead are correct.
If you would like to quote your actual income for last year then please get your figures and paperwork into us as soon as possible so that we have everything ready for you by the 31 July deadline. Alternatively, you may quote an estimated income for the time being, but the actual amount must be quoted by 31 January.
If you prefer not to fill in the forms provided in your pack, just call the Tax Credit Helpline on 0845 300 3900 and you can provide the information over the phone.
Don’t forget, if you don’t renew by the deadline, whether you quote an actual or estimated income, your payments will stop.
If you have any queries about Tax Credits, please contact us.
