Lincolnshire claimants have just over a week to renew tax credits

LINCOLNSHIRE’S 103,500 tax credit claimants have been reminded that they only have until July 31 to renew their claims.

HM Revenue & Customs issued the reminder today.

They warned that if claimants did 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.
