A few weeks and counting until claim renewal deadline

PUBLISHED: 13:52 02 July 2013


Devon tax claimants are being reminded by HM Revenue and Customs they have less than a month to renew their claims, or their payments could stop.

Tax credits renewal packs were sent out from last April and residents are being encouraged to fill them out early to avoid mistakes and prolonged waiting periods.

Nick Lodge, Director General of Benefits and Credits, said: “The sooner you renew, the sooner we can check payments are correct, meaning we avoid paying too little, or too much money that you will then have to pay back.”

For all information on tax credit renewals, call the Tax Credits Helpline on 0345 3003900.
