Hi

 

Hoping for some help on here.

 

I havent received tax credits since 2008 when I started working full time. 

 

I have out of the blue received.... a letter from HMRC stating I owe £484 from tax credit overpayment and need to pay or they'll pursue. The letter attached has a statement that says 2014 overpayment £484 I dont know where that has come from.... I definitely did not get tax credits in 2014, as said I last got them in 2008 as a student. 

 

I want to argue but don't want to acknowledge. Is it statute barred?

I don't believe I actually owe them anything. Not sure where to start

Government debts don't become statute barred as such, as they always have ways to collect them, unless you did not live in the UK.

 

You can dispute owing the debt by writing to them. Ask them to provide proof the amount is owed by providing records and calculations. HMRC should have written to you at the time the debt was created, so ask them for a copy of the record that proves they wrote to you at the time.

 

We could do with some help from you.
