Been a right numpty and haven't been claiming Child Tax Credit for the last 5 months, only just realised! We are claiming Child Benefit too (I did that one on time!)
Just want to know if we're missing out on anything else? HELP!
If ou phone the inland evenue they send you a form to fill in for the child tax credit. You enter all incomes and they work out what you get. If you earn less than a certain amount then you get working tax credit. you may also get help towards childcare costs. The Inland Revenue work it all out from one form though.
