Description

BSL video: How to renew your Tax Credits HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) is urging people to renew their tax credits claim online, as soon as possible before the 31 July deadline. If you don’t renew by the deadline, your payments will stop and you risk being overpaid. You can renew your claim in three different ways: 1. By going online to www.gov.uk/managetaxcredits. You can use this service even if you have changes to report. 2. By sending your form back to HMRC in the post. 3. By calling the tax credits helpline on 0345 3003900 (0345 300 3909 textphone). The helpline gets very busy in the run up to the 31 July deadline so you should do this as soon as possible after receiving your pack. HMRC call centres get very busy in the lead up to the deadline, so to save time, you can renew your claim online, update your circumstances or check your next payment details. To use the online service you will need access to: ● Your National Insurance number ● Your renewals pack ● A mobile phone ● Information about your income (for example your P60, a full list is available at www.gov.uk/claim-tax-credits/what-counts-as-income) Are you Deaf, do you need support with this?
