How to renew tax credits

You can no longer renew your tax credits for the 2016 to 2017 tax year.

Call the tax credits helpline if any of the following apply:

  • you’ve missed the deadline
  • you estimated any income when you renewed and need to report your actual income - the deadline is 31 January
  • you renewed and there’s a mistake on your award notice

You’ll need your National Insurance number and your renewal pack, if you have it.

If you’ve renewed

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) will send you an award notice within 8 weeks of receiving your renewal to tell you how much you’ll get.
