NEARLY 11,000 families in Fenland who claim tax credit have been urged to renew their claims by July 31 or risk their payments being stopped.

The advice was given today by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) which is sending the reminder to all 74,1000 families across Cambridgeshire who receive tax credit.

“Renewing is simple,” said a spokesman for HMRC. “You need to check the accuracy of the information in the renewals pack you’ve been sent, and let HMRC know of any changes in your circumstances you haven’t already reported during the year, such as your working hours, childcare costs or pay.

“You must also provide details of your previous year’s income.

“Having the right documents to hand will help reduce errors when you’re filling out the form, for example, payslips, your end of year P60 form and childcare details.”

The spokesman added: “There are only a few days left to renew your tax credits, so you need to take urgent action if you haven’t done so. It’s simple – if you don’t renew your claim before 31 July, your payments will stop.”
