    oooo they've put money in my account. Not got a letter yet explaining how much we'll get a month. I'm guessing it's back dated.

    Child Tax Credit

    Child Tax Credit is paid into the bank account of the claimant (parent) who is the main carer to the child.

    Families who are on incomes of up to £58,000 a year, or £66,000 a year if there is at least one child who is less than a year old ( these are combined wages), can benefit from Child Tax Credit whether or not they are working.

    This credit is there for the sole purpose to support your child and help towards the costs of raising your child.

    ive looked into this as when i seen the part about income of upto 58,000 or 66,000 i thought well me and my oh should come under this as between us we earn no more than 40,000 a year and guess what we are not ableto claim anything as the actual amount you can earn upto is as stated on hm website the following:

    Because your household income is more than 26,000 a year, you might not qualify for tax credits. But it's important to know that:
    • this is a rough guide, based on a family with one child
    • whether you can actually get tax credits will depend on your own circumstances
    If you have two children, for example, you may still be able to get tax credits if your income is up to 32,200 a year.

    Kayleigh- same situation here, we earn under 58000 but when I did an online calculator it said we aren't entitled to child tax credits or working tax credits. 26,000 seems like a very low threshold.

  14. #29
    As far as I know the threshold for receiving Child Tax Credit came down to 27,000 last year, the other figures must have been for previous years. I think its higher if you pay childcare or have more than one child. Hope that helps

    Yeah they changed, I had my son in 2010 and we had combined wage of 30k and we got CTC, then in 2011 the tories reduced it to 26k for one child and 32k for 2 childrem so we lost it (we only got 10 a week as it was) now we are expecting baby number 2 we should be able to get it back unless they change the threasholds again xx
