Thats correct, the CTC amount would pay out maximum entitlement even if your income was 14k. Can I ask why you say this cause the overpayments?

Their agents don't always help matters. I phoned them on Monday to inform I'd gone back to work and gave them an estimated income for the year of £18k plus benefit already paid.

 

The agent kept trying to say that my total income would only be £12k total, how she got that figure I still don't know as even the base salary without commission would come to £9k between now and the end of the tax year, and that included benefit received this year.

What type of benefit did you recieve? I always thought benefits were not to be included in your annual income when calculating tax credits. There are a couple of benefits which you do need to included, but the list is quite short. They must be taxable social security benefits. http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/forms/tc603r-notes.pdf details on page 20. Let me know how you get on. Also very helpful

Incapacity Benefit, so it unfortunately is counted in income as I had to pay tax on it :-(

im paying back 5700 for the period 2002/2003 and 2003/2004.

i told them i had notified them everytime there had been a change in circumstances, i was unemployed from november 2003 to october 2004 but they said i phoned and notified them that i was earning 13K???? would love to know where from.

the reply i got was that given the information i had provided then the overpayments were correct and it had to be paid back.

i went to see my MP at the time John Prescott and he wished me luck!

funnily enough a couple of times when i phoned to notify them of changes to my circumstances their "computer system was having technical problems" and if there was any change in the amount i was due to receive they would send me a new award notice (which never came)

ive given up on tax credits, seems like it doesnt know its a*se from its elbow tbh

Did you ever claim Working Families Tax Credit? This was the name of it before New Tax Credits was launched in April 2003. The reason I ask is that, if New TC's only started in April 2003 which is tax year 03-04, so how can the make you pay money back from a year when it didn't even exisit?

This bit is complicated. When I started working there, we were dealing with information from 01-02 to match up to WFTC details from the changeover during 02-03, and I've certainly seen NTC paperwork dated from before April 03.

I also worked with the changeover from WFTC to NTC. There may have been some papers showing an award as such, but no actual NTC award notices would of been issued prior to 06-04-2003 as the system was not allowed to start running until that actual start date. I do know that people submitted claims prior to 06-04-2003 these details were then held on a temp basis on a system called NICO (I think). Everybody who claimed in that first year were asked income deatils from 01/02 to provisionally start their tax credit entitlement.

I used to work for tax credits up until feb this year and the main problem is the system, as it is always messing claims up and no one knows why.Your best bet is to complete a COP 26 (appeal form) and see how that goes. Hopefully they will realise you have provided all the correct info and their system has screwed up. (Again).

You cannot 'appeal' against an overpayment you can only 'Dispute' it.

I know that, I was only quoting what the OP had called it, as I didn't want to add any confusion :)
