A total of 323,700 customers are yet to renew their tax credits ahead of the deadline, with HMRC reminding them to do so by 31 July – or their payments will stop.
Tax credits help working families with targeted financial support – so it’s important that customers renew before the deadline to ensure they don’t miss out on money they’re entitled to.
Customers can renew their tax credits for free via GOV.UK or the HMRC app. Customers can log into GOV.UK to check on the progress of their renewal, be reassured it’s being processed and know when they’ll hear back from HMRC.
If there is a change in a customer’s circumstances that could affect their tax credits claims, they must report the changes to HMRC. Circumstances that could affect tax credit payments include changes to living arrangements, childcare, working hours, or income (increase or decrease).
