Check paras 403 & 404 in “the guide to new tax credits”.

The inland rev seem to be ignoring decades of case law on the subject and concluding that the claimant is unlikely to to know about benefit calculation errors.

Presumably this is because the calc is “complicated”. Well aren’t they always?

We’ll have to see what happens if someone appeals. I can’t see a tribunal being so relaxed about throwing out thousands of precedants.
