You can appeal a tax credits decision, eg how much you’ve been awarded.
There’s a different form if you want to dispute a tax credit overpayment.
How to appeal
Send an appeal form to the Tax Credit Office within 30 days of their decision letter.
They may accept your appeal if you miss the deadline, but you’ll have to explain why it’s late.

If you don’t agree with the response
You can appeal to an independent tribunal if:
- you aren’t happy with how your case was handled
- your appeal wasn’t accepted because it was late
The Tax Credit Office’s response to your appeal will tell you how your appeal is sent to the tribunal.
