Tax credit renewals - a quick guide

If you’re claiming tax credits, you’ll be sent a renewal pack. It will tell you how to renew your tax credits.

If your renewal pack has a black line across the front page:
Check your details to make sure they’re correct. You don’t need to do anything if your details are correct. Your tax credits will be automatically renewed.
You must tell the Tax Credit Office by 31 July 2019 if anything in your pack is incorrect. Your tax credits could stop or you could be fined if you don’t.

If your renewal pack has a red line across the first page:
You must renew your tax credits by 31 July 2019. If you miss the deadline your tax credits payments will stop.
You’ll be sent a statement and will have to pay back the tax credits you’ve been given since 6 April 2019. From 6 April, you’ll get estimated payments from HMRC until you renew. Your payments may have changed based on information from your employer or pension provider.
