What are Working Tax Credits?
Tax credits are payments from the government. If you work, but are on a low income, you may qualify for Working Tax Credit.
Am I eligible?
You can claim Working Tax Credit (WTC) if you are already working, will be starting work within 7 days of claiming and if you are on a low enough income. There may be additional eligibility criteria. The HMRC website has a Tax Credit Questionnaire where you can find out how much tax credits you might be entitled to.
How do I claim?
To claim tax credits you have to fill in a claim form. You can order a claim pack from the HMRC Tax Credit Helpline as shown below.
