Tax Credit Advice

Will my tax credits be cut?

The government hasn’t yet sent out the letters confirming which families will have their tax credits cut, or by how much.

If you expect that you might be affected by tax credit cuts, you can make sure you’re prepared by getting some advice on how to cope with the cuts.

Here are some websites with help and advice:
