Tax credits correspondence
In light of all the fraudulent email correspondence purporting to come from HMRC it is perhaps not surprising that recipients of genuine correspondence from HMRC are sometimes suspicious that it may be fraudulent.
In this instance, HMRC are keen to stress that the tax credit office really is sending out letters to tax credit claimants with the heading "Help with your Tax Credit Renewal". The letters offer help with renewing a tax credits claim and ask the recipient to call one of HMRC’s specialist tax credits teams.
HMRC have advised that the letters are intended to help tax credit claimants report the right details when renewing a claim and to help the tax credits office ensure that the right amount is being paid to claimants.
