How much to do you have to earn for a single parent and how much if you have a partner, one child no child care. Think tax credits have done me over.

Household income below £26,000. Working a minimum of 24 hours as a couple, or 16 hours as a single parent. What do you mean by done you over?

26k for 1 child, 32k for 2 children and it goes higher but I dont know thresholds

Rustybusty - is that 32k only if both parents working? DH earns fractionally less & we get nothing

Yes both parents working though not sure if it is combination of 24 for both their hours or one min of 24 hours per week one child 26k two 32k though differs I think if child has a disability.

My mate is in exactly the same boat as boat, she gets a lot more then me, plus are earnings last year are the same. It's a work mate

What is the trouble? Do you fit that criteria? If the household income us less than I think 16/7k ish you get working tax credits for low income. Can you give us a bit more detail?

Hi,
I wonder if I am supposed to get something as well. Both parents working, one child, no childcare costs and no money. My friend has the same income as us (again both parents working with 1 child) but they get money. The only difference for us is that mine is a baby and hers is at school. Does that qualify as childcare cost? How come she gets tax credit and I don't?

I thought it was per household. DH earns just less than £32k. I am a SAHM and we get a little tax credits

Rockchick1984 Thu 04-Apr-13 16:32:46

Hopa what is your annual household income? Also, is anyone in her house disabled?

It is per household doesn't matter if only one person works but that one person has to work at least 24 hours.
