Havering’s 15,200 tax credit claimants have a month to renew their claims – or their payments might stop.
The deadline is July 31. If you claim tax credits, you should have been sent a renewal pack within the last three months.
You should check the accuracy of the information in the pack, and tell HMRC about any changes to your circumstances that they haven’t already reported – such as working hours, childcare costs or pay.
You also have to tell HMRC whether you’re single or living with a partner, and HMRC might write to you asking for further information and documents so that the department can check that the information provided is correct.
