Business News - Tax Credit Customers Urged To Act Now
10:17am 28th May 2012
Dorset's 58,000 tax credit customers are being reminded by HM Revenue and Customs that they must renew claims by the 31st July deadline or their payments may stop.
If that applies to you, you're being urged to act as soon as you get your renewal pack from HMRC.
The department is also asking claimants to double check the accuracy of the information in the pack.
HMRC may make follow up queries with claimant's employers to check on the correctness of some of the information.
Claimants must let HMRC know of any changes in their circumstances that they haven't already report during the year.
That could be about their working hours, childcare costs or pay. If asked they must provide details of the previous year's income.
The Tax credit Helpline is 0345 300 3900.
