Thurrock claimants have just over a week to renew tax credits
Date posted: 18-07-2012
HM Revenue & Customs reminded the 15,800 tax credit claimants in Thurrock that they have until 31 July to renew their claims.
If they do not renew their claims in time, payments could stop.
Alison McDonald, Director, Benefits and Credits, said:
“Claimants only have a few days left to renew their tax credits. If they don’t do it in time, payments will stop, and people could lose all the money they have received since April.
“They also need to check their details in their renewal packs carefully as any errors now could mean they receive less money.”
For help with renewals, claimants can call 0345 300 3900.
