Remember Remember the …….31 July – Tax Credit Renewal Deadline
By: Adrienne Groom
Tax Credit Deadline
Tax credits are state benefits that provide extra money to people responsible for children, disabled workers and other workers on lower incomes.
Tax credits are tax-free and you don’t have to be paying National Insurance or tax to qualify, but they are means-tested. So, whether you qualify and how much you get depends on your household’s income and circumstances.
If you are already in receipt of tax credits you should have already received your renewal pack if not you must contact the tax credit office immediately on 0345 300 3900.
The renewal can be done over the phone, in writing or in some cases on line. To check if you can do your renewal on line go to www.gov.uk/renewtaxcredits
You must renew your tax credit claim by 31 July 2014 or your payments will stop!
If you do not already claim tax credits but think you may be eligible go to www.gov.uk/benefits/taxcredits
