Tax Credits - Anyone Understand The System?

Recommended Posts

BBC Tax credits criticised by MPs

From this financial year, claimants have to inform the HMRC only if their income rises by £25,000 in a year, not £2,500 as before.

Is £25,000 not a lot these days?? How many people on tax credits would you reckon their income rises by £25000 during a tax year??

No wonder they have managed to reduce accuracy from 78% to 96%

Hey, if they increased it to £250,000, i reckon it would pretty much 100% accurate no doubt...

These are a f'ing stupid idea, it would probably be cheaper just to reduce tax to give the same effect for everyone.

Indeed.

I have been looking into tax credits as we are having a baby next month.

Basically anyone on a living wage (i.e. household income above about 15k) gets a fixed amount of £545. It would save millions if they just added £545 to child benefit. The small number of people on over £70k would get a bit more than before, but this would be more than covered by the money saved on administration.
