  • Tax credits

    Following on from a couple of recent threads i thought I'd just make sure that everyone knows about Tax credits.
    There are two sections to tax credits the first being child tax credit which is a benefit payable when you have child(ren) and you or your partner work over 16 hours per week. The second part is working tax credits and you do not need children to apply for this.

    Basically if you are working or are working as a self employed person for 16 hours or more you may be entitled to this benefit. It is basically a top up for your earnings. You may also be entitled to additional benefits such as free eye care / prescriptions or dentistry.

    you can get further details from: http://www.workingfamilies.org.uk/asp/calculator/

    If I could give you rep for being so helpful, I would.

    But I can't.

        Thanks for above, although I don't think you qualify if your partner earns a reasonable ammount (although no idea what that ammount is, I know I don't qualify! )

          I think the amount is about £16,000 though it was last year when I checked. I was furious as I only found out after supporting my other half for a year that I could have been claiming this all along and they don't let you backdate it! Unfortunately I realised 2 weeks after I had got fed up and moved out. I told everyone else I knew at that point about it though. They don't really advertise it much... I guess they don't really want to pay out...

            Yes but bet your bottom dollar if you had paid too LESS TAX they would backdate it so you owed them!!
