Need a bit of advice on how tax credit claims work.

 

 

My partner and I moved in together in autumn last year (2014) and

 

 

we are now about to apply for working tax credits as a couple.

 

 

Previous to that she had been living alone for two years after separating from a long term partner.

 

 

They were claiming tax credits together as a couple and I assume that their claim would and SHOULD have ceased when she moved out

and lived alone for the next two years.

 

 

I am uncertain as to whether she claimed as an individual during that time.

 

 

During our recent discussions about a new joint claim for the two of us,

it came to light that she has just been asked by her ex to submit financial information

relating to their joint claim up to when they separated two years ago.

I am slightly confused as to why.

 

 

Is it feasible that the tax office would be wanting information from so far back?

And for what reason?

 

 

The reason I ask is because I am concerned that her ex never stopped their claim when they separated

and what the consequences of that may be for us.

 

 

Is it just me or does it sound a bit suspect?

it does

sounds like they are after a refund of payments neither of them were entitled too.

 

 

best idea is to get her to ring them.

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Interesting.

 

 

I hadn't thought of that.

 

 

I'm starting to get the impression that they both know more than they're letting on,

or at least don't want to admit to me that they were claiming when they shouldn't have been.

 

 

Her story is that it's 'related to when they were living together' and will say no more.

 

 

If that's the case how will it affect OUR claim?

although she has not benefitted as she has not seen the money

she will be jointy liable if there is an over payment I expect.

 

 

so , yes you could see deductions.

 

 

it prob best to discuss this with them and prove any proof that might help her/you negate any poss clawback.

from tax credit guidance -

 

If you’re still getting tax credits payments we’ll automatically reduce these payments to recover an overpayment from your ongoing tax credits. Overpayments we will recover may be from:

• awards you or your partner have had as single people

• awards you and your partner have had together either now or previously

 

We will not recover from your ongoing tax credits any overpayments from awards you or your partner have had with other partners.
