I received a letter from the HMRC team on 12th December 2011, just asking for some more information on my tax credit claim, and to send information back my 11th Janurary 2012.


Asking if I still worked at the same company that I had orginally told them i worked at in 2005, but I have been with 2 other companies since 2006, and since being at these 2 company's my income has increased, but i haven't declared the increase.


£21,000 is my actual income, and has been for last 3 years but am glad this is finally out, as have been putting my head in sand hoping it will go away and I have not been sleeping for days as I had been carrying this guilt for long time as it just seem's I seem to be sufffering some kind of crisis when i receive my renewal pack its been too easy just to put lower income in and sign and post back.


And know fine well what I've being doing is absolutely terribe and am so embarrassed that I could lower myself to do this as I consider myself a very honest person. But I'll put my hand up as I know I've done wrong and say I'm willing to pay back any money I've been overpaid which I think is maybe about £9K.


Please help. Do I just fill in form with the correct information and put letter in explaining everything, will I go to prison? will they contact my employer?


I do not have any excuse, and sick with worry incase they prosecute me and I lose job, but suppose I've no body to blame but myself.


Thanks in advance for your help!!

Thanks very much and can't believe how stupid I've been, as I said been through a lot in last few years, as me and my partner split up, was made homeless and also lost ma wee Dad last year.


But certainly not looking for any sympathy just advice how I go forward from here.
