Welwyn Hatfield residents reminded to renew tax credits claims

RESIDENTS in Hertfordshire are being urged to renew their tax credit claims – or face having their payments stopped.

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) is reminding the 9,000 families in Welwyn Hatfield and the 7,500 in Hertsmere who receive tax credits that the deadline for renewing claims is at the end of this month – July 31.

Failure to renew your claim by then will result in your payments being stopped.

The HMRC has launched a series of online help videos which take tax credit claimants step-by-step through the renewals process. To watch the videos, and for more information, click on the link to the right.
