Tax credits renewal deadline 31 July
Tax credit claims need to be renewed by 31 July 2009. Claimants who do not renew on-time may have their payments stopped.
Claims should be renewed by completing the renewals pack that was sent by HMRC earlier this year. HMRC need to be notified where there have been changes as regards family size, child care costs, number of hours worked and salary changes. Details of previous year’s income also need to be completed on the form to allow HMRC to check if the correct tax credits have been paid.
Any further changes which take place during the year should be notified to HMRC immediately, such as a partner leaving (or vice versa), significant changes in salary or the birth of a new child.
