  • Child Tax Credit

    Currently receiving tax credits with disabled element for my 17 year old son who has an EHC Plan. Currently in dispute with local authority who want to cease EHC Plan and there is legal action pending in SEND Tribunal & the High Court. Local authority is (unlawfully) refusing to allow him to return to his school in September, saying they will instead provide "home tutors " No details of what that is or how many hours have been provided. I'm not sure what to put on my tax credits renewal. Would "home tutors" qualify as approved education for tax credit purposes if that's all that's going to be provided? Can I continue to claim tax credits pending the outcome of the legal action?
