  1. i feel like a scaredy cat by ignoring them ....im thinkin that by replyin to them and letting them know the situation that wen or if it goes to court, the judge would see i am tryin to resolve situation and have kept lines of communication open ..... i think by not replyin that i would seem rude . i do want to resolve the issue as its very stressful and i think by goin to court would be only way of resolvin it but i dont want to look as if im the bad guy
  2. sorry to be a pest today i got letter from tax credit office . .its an award notice sayin we are not entitled to anything yet we have not claimed since 2012. Also it shows my income as it was prior to March 2015 when due to health reasons I had to give up work so they have that figure wrong why suddenly are they sendin us an award notice when we have not applied for tax credits since 2012? .. .its getting stranger by the minute because we are still being sent letters from the debt collection agencies ... .... I usually answer them but have not do
  3. can anyone help on this matter please
  4. so by ignoring them, does this mean they cannot take me to court or anything like that? thanks in advance for your time and advice has anyone any advice reagding fighting alleged overpayments of tax credits please thanks in advice for any help or advice
  5. ok i will now ignore them and see how that goes do you have any advice on my post above please about fighting the £132 payment from hmrc on the grounds that we had not applied for 2yrs previous to that payment so its their mistake then on the payment they say they made based on zero income which makes no sense because the award the year beofre and year after was based on same figures that was on the claim for the year they claim overpayment ..... also are the laws regarding dca companies the same in scotland as they are in england because i am based in scotland
  6. i cannot ignore them as they both keep writing to me giving me 14 days to prove i am in dispute with HMRC. I even contacted HMRC and told them to ask the DCA companies to stop contacting me but they not doing anything about. Im sure you know, its reasonable reaction to panic when you get dca letter but i thought by writing back to them and explaining things that they would leave me alone but its not the case .... . and its even more maddening when 2 dca companies chasing me for the same thing .. .. surely thats just wrong
  7. i have recieved all my SAR documents from HMRC if thats who you meaning? I really need help with HMRC alleged overpayment of tax credits asap because i have 2 seperate DCA's chasing me for these alleged overpayments ... .. and i really cannot take this stress. I am thinking i need to close the £132 overpayment as their mistake because we never applied for the 2yrs previous to them paying that money into our account and we never got any letters to say we got that from them .... .. we did get the money into our account but at that time, we got 3 seperate back date
  8. i have just read through the HB post .... now im worried as i been paying them just under £100 per month since september 2012 so i will be contacting them now to see what payment they have made on my behalf. Now getting back to the tax credit overpayments, how can they base an award on zero income when forms filled in gave estimates of earnings that were same as year befores earning and also the year after the period they say they overpaid us ..... to be eligible for tax credits you have to be working 16hrs per week or less . ... so to base an award on zer

  10. no its a company called think link .... we have been payin them set amount each month since 2012 and hmrc were part of that but for different figure than they state in letters they sent us about all overpayments ..... its so confusing ....... im not gettin any figures to add up and really need some help with this ..... does anyone know any help i turn too please
  11. can a tax credit award be based on a zero income? ..... I am goin through the paperwork they're claiming we were overpaid by £8000 approx but figures keep changing according to letters they say we were paid on zero income to avoid puttin us into hardship they state on another part of the letter that all awards are based on previous years income and we always filled in the income part of our forms so they are completely confusing me with all this nonsense. we are in debt management scheme and they have been getting paid through that but the figure they gave to t
  12. can someone advise please . I am in scotland due to ill health, I had to give up work and we were no longer entitled to tax credits since 2010 we have not revieved any tax credits payments In 2011 after long battle, I got enhanced rate of rate and got a lump sum which was back dated money Since those payments came thru, tax credits have been chasing us for different amount of money goin back to 2009 and I have been arguing with them because they keep using 2 different debt collection agencies to chase us but give each company a different figure
