Don’t forget the tax credits deadline!

The tax credit deadline is 31 July 2014.

If you have been claiming tax credits you should have received your renewal pack by now which you need to complete and return by 31 July (unless your renewal pack gives you a different deadline).

If you miss the deadline your tax credits payments will stop and you’ll be sent a summary. Your tax credits claim will end 30 days after you’re sent the summary if you don’t renew.

So make sure you’re filling in your renewal pack in plenty of time.

If you need information on tax credits then visit the official government website which should be able to answer any questions that you have.
