TOPIC: Carers allowance and working tax credit

Carers allowance and working tax credit 3 days ago #246232

Thursday my partner recieved a letter stating he has been paid to much working tax credits as we never declared the carers allowance and that this money will have to be paid back I got really scared and called them straightaway only to be informed that they have checked the claim carers allowance is on there so told the agent they have really scared me why send the letter she said that the letter is generic letter being sent to everyone and that it is really just a nudge to let people know that the benefit is taxable but the letter never said that so asked that a complaint about these letters be logged so if anyone out there does get one of these letters call them straightaway dont panic like I did and have them check your claim and log a complaint with everything that is going on at this time do the government really need to make us any more scared

Sorry to hear you were caused such upset and anxiety by this.

It is not uncommon unfortunately for letters such as this to be sent out.
