Working Tax Credit is a payment made to working people on a low income to top up their earnings.
Working Tax Credit is made up of different elements to suit people’s different circumstances. These include a single parent element, a disability element and a childcare element.
You may still be able to claim Working Tax Credit for up to 28 weeks if you’re off work due to illness. See also our information on Child Tax Credit. |
The number of hours you must work to qualify for Working Tax Credit changed in April 2012. Speak to a welfare rights adviser about the number of hours you need to work to qualify for this tax credit.
Call the HMRC tax credits helpline on 0345 300 3900 or textphone 0345 300 3909. You can also get an application pack from your local HMRC Enquiry Centre. For more information, visit www.hmrc.gov.uk/taxcredits|.
