What happens if your tax credits claim is selected for checking.
Every year we check thousands of tax credits claims to make sure that we are:
- paying the right amount of tax credits based on customers’ income and circumstances
- running the tax credits system fairly and efficiently
If we check your current tax credits claim, it is known as an ‘examination’.
