Has any one else been checked?I make dolls x

I can't speak for your circumstances bu it can take up to 8 weeks for the letter confirming your credits calculations and payment schedule to arrive. (Mine took 6).

If you're worried, ring the tax.credits helpline. They will be able to tell you when or if a letter has been sent to you. They may even be able to give you the new calculated figurr over the phone.

Though I suspect the helpline will be extremely busy at the moment bevause of yesterday's budget announcement. So expect long hold times.
