I phoned tax credits as I had to change the telephone number. I ended up getting the lady to help me. We went through the childcare for last year and this year. As I told her I really didn’t want to get any further payments that I wasn’t entitled to. If I’m completely honest I’m still confused how they go about working out childcare costs. For my stress levels I’m not perusing claiming. Although from what I understand I’m not entitled to them anyway (during this tax year)even though he will be going during school summer holiday
It turns out I have obviously had a big over payment by my calculations just under £5k. They’re going to work this out and send me out a new renewals. Exactly as dx100uk and London1971 advised....my repayments which will be taken off my payments monthly. No fine was mentioned.
The lady said I wouldn’t need to the compliance telephone interview as the questions they’d have asked me would have been what we had already discussed. I’m guessing she’ll cancel this her end.
To anyone who needs help these letters are scary. They get you overthinking. On the flip side If I had not got mine I would never had paid much attention to the childcare as I had presumed they’d worked it out. Lessons learn always review your tax credit renewals and never assume!
As you can see, the advice given on here so far with regards to my case has been 100% accurate. Listen to what they are telling you. They know what they’re talking about. Thank you dx100uk and London1971.
