In-Work Tax Credit
Confirm your working hours.
About this service
If you’re an existing Working for Families Tax Credits customer and you have not taken up your entitlement to in-work tax credits, please use our on-line form to confirm that you normally work the required hours. Completing the questions will only take a few minutes.
All you need to do is tell us if:
- You are a two parent family who normally works 30 hours or more a week. This can be one parent working these hours or both parents working these hours between them.
- You are a single parent who normally works 20 hours or more a week.
After you finish the on-line form
Your in-work tax credit details will be updated over the next 2 days. You will not need to contact Inland Revenue to confirm your details again.
If you receive your Working for Families Tax Credits either weekly or fortnightly we will calculate your new entitlement for you. You will receive a new notice of entitlement in a few weeks time showing the new amount of Working for Families Tax Credits you are entitled to, including in-work tax credit. Your new entitlement will begin from the date you confirmed your in-work tax credit details. You will receive any backdated amounts of in-work tax credit you are entitled to after the end of the tax year.
If you receive your Working for Families Tax Credits as a lump sum payment after the end of the tax year, your in-work tax credit entitlement will be included with this payment.
