Working Tax Credit – Do I qualify?

Greetings Folks

Some people are not aware that they may be entitled to working tax credit – Working Tax Credit   is a payment from the state for people who work on a low income based on the previous financial year. No one will tell you except a good friend  (Femi in my case)  so check and see if you are eligible. The worst that can happen is that you do not meet the criteria so you really do not have anythng to lose by calling them up. See if you qualify by clicking here.

Please find below some detailed information from the HRMC Revenue and Customs website regarding Working Tax Credit (WTC)

Working Tax Credit (WTC) is for people who are employed or self employed (either on their own or in a business partnership), who

• get paid for their work
• expect to go on working for at least 4 weeks
and who are either
• aged 16 or over and responsible for at least one child, and usually working at least 16 hours a week, or
• aged 16 or over and disabled, and usually working at least 16 hours a week, or
• aged 50 or over and are starting work after receiving certain benefits for at least 6 months and usually working at least 16 hours a week, or
• aged 25 or over and usually working at least 30 hours a week.

WTC is made up of the following

• basic element, paid to any working person who meets the conditions
• lone parent element, for single parents
• couples element, for couples
• 30 hour element, for people who work at least 30 hours a week. Couples with at least one child can claim the 30 hour element if they work at least 30 hours a week between them providing at least one of them works 16 hours or more a week
