I'm currently a single mum of 2 and claim working tax credit and child tax credit.
My boyfriend and I are thinking of moving in together (him moving into my home).
I said I will inform Tax Credits accordingly and make a joint claim once he moves in.
The problem is, he has made it very clear that he will not provide proof of his wages etc (it's his privacy).
He said that he wants to provide and we won't be eligible for anything so I should just call them and close my claim.
My question is:
Can I just call to say I wish to end my tax credit claim as my boyfriend will be living with me?.
Will they not ask for his employer, salary details etc?
I don't want to end up with an overpayment.
Also, is there a best time to close tax credit claims because my friend said that I should wait till end of tax year April or July?
Really confused so any advice would be appreciated.
