Tax Tip

Extra time for tax credits renewals

 HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) is giving tax credit customers an extra week to renew their tax credits claim – if they have not already done so. This is in response to industrial action taking place and that people may find it more difficult to get through to the tax credits renewal phone line as a result of the industrial action. They now have until Wednesday 6 August to renew.

 
Stuart Coleman, Manager of the Tax Department of ABDS comments:
“Tax credits customers with changes to declare must now tell HMRC by the 6 August or they will lose their tax credits. As well as the online service, customers can send their tax credits declaration to HMRC by post, or self-serve on the phone using the new automated speech-recognition service on the tax credits helpline, by saying ‘Renewals’ when prompted.”
 
Lin Homer, Chief Executive of HMRC, said:
We are very disappointed by the timing of the decision by PCS to call a strike to coincide with the tax credits renewal deadline. It is a great shame that the union is asking HMRC staff to strike, deliberately putting the livelihoods of hard-working families at risk to further an industrial dispute.
