Deadline closing in - don't miss out
With the tax credits renewal deadline of 31 July just over two weeks away, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has revealed the top 10 excuses for not renewing tax credits claims.
Excuses given by claimants to HMRC for missing the deadline include:
Claimants have until the 31 July deadline to renew, or their payments might end. Last year more than 650,000 failed to renew on time. This year, for the first time, claimants can renew online, at GOV.UK, as well as being able to renew by post and phone.
Nick Lodge, Director General of Benefits and Credits, HMRC, said:
“So far, over 203,000 claimants have renewed online. It’s a quick and easy way to do it. Renewing tax credits on time is important. People who don't renew by the deadline can, and do, lose their payments.”
|In Inner London there are 249,400 tax claimants.
