Never mind, the bankers bonuses are ok so that should be a comfort to you.

Same old Tories, same old lies

I'm surprised you were still awarded tax credits, to be honest. In my case, the simply assumed that I had the same salary as the previous year and stopped the CTC from April. I shall miss the £40/month a little but, as a conscientious conservative voter, feel far happier that the money is staying in the public purse and being used for people/causes with more pressing needs. Never understood why Brown thought people on <£55k needed cash benefits in the first place... cynical vote-buying? Same old Labour, same old making free with other people's money...

I'm surprised they carried on paying it out too. Not sure about whether they will be owed or not.
Does anyone know if the limit is £40k exactly? We earnd £40,029 last year sad

Best way to check is to run your income and other details through something like this handy Benefits Checker. I'm not sure if it's 100% accurate but it's a good way to judge if you've been awarded the right sort of amount.

If you've submitted your tax credit renewal form with the correct information, they will eventually work out that you no longer qualify. No point hanging on the phone, wasting time. In the meantime, put any payments you receive in a savings account. When they ask for a refund you will a) have the money available and b) have earned a peny or three interest.
