Payment Table

Working for Families Tax Credits 2016 (1 April 2016 to 31 March 2017)

The table below gives estimates for each type of payment from 1 April 2016.

Family tax credit (FTC) is paid regardless of your source of income. In-work tax credit (IWTC) is an additional payment for families who normally work a minimum number of hours each week for salary and wages. Parental tax credit (PTC) helps with the costs of a new baby for the first ten weeks (eight weeks if the baby was born before 1 April 2015) after your baby's birth. Minimum family tax credit (MFTC) is paid to families earning up to $23,764.00 or less after tax to ensure a minimum family income of $457 a week after tax. To get this payment, at least one parent must be working for salary or wages for a minimum number of hours each week.

The amounts are based on your eldest child being aged 15 years or under and all other children being aged 12 years or under. If you have older children, you may be able to earn more and still be eligible.

However, if you are receiving a Foster Care Allowance or an Orphan’s or Unsupported Child’s Benefit, the amounts listed in the table below will not apply to you. Please call Inland Revenue on 0800 227 773 to gain an accurate calculation of your entitlement.
