(The first time I have claimed this, even though Ds1 is 2! Please bear with me! lol )
Ok, so it arrived today, one addressed to me and one to Dh.
It says we qualify for the Child element and says how much they will pay me, but they have also totted it all up for Tax credits, a huge amount actually, and then at the bottom of the working, it says the amount we will be paid is nil.
Why total it all up if they are not going to pay us it? To tease me? It just seems a waste of someones time.
Or will it be paid to Dh through his wages?
I'm a spud, sorry.
I called the helpline but there was a bit of a language barrier and the guy basically read my Child credit figures that I had in front of me to me.
TBH, we are pretty skint and I did think Dh would qualify for Tax credits as he pays loads of tax each month, even though he is on the right tax code.
A mate of mine who works full time and whose Dh also works recieves Child & Tax so I am confused!?
I am very grateful for what they are paying me and it is really helping, but if I am missing out, I would like to claim it obviously!
Yeah, it says we have CTC and there is a payment schedule with dates of when they are paying it which is fine, but they have also done the sums for the WTC then said what flying says 'deduction due to income' and subtracted the whole amount they summed up.
I just donr get why they would total it up so I can see it if I dont qualify for it?!
