Call from HMRC as deadline approaches to renew tax credits
The 330,000 tax credit recipients in the East of England are being urged to renew before the July 31 deadline to avoid having their payments stopped.
According to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) 410,00 customers across the UK had their payments stopped or altered last year after missing the deadline to inform the government body of changes in their circumstances, such as changes to working hours, income and childcare costs.
Rachel McLean, HMRC’s interim director general of customer services, said improvements had been made to the online services and app including a stop-and-start feature.
