Reply To: WTC overpayment


I too have come across this and have several “guesses”; this could be just a standard part of the notification that gives the daily rate (and how it is paid) : software error in the letter.
Or it could be that “some” payments may still be made by the employer after they should have stopped (as yet I do not know of Performance Indicators for employers who pay Tax Credits as part of their payroll function!), whether these are hardship payments, errors or are actually paid I don’t know yet but I do need to know if I should be taking them into account as income.
I have removed Tax Credits in some of these cases but I am not 100% certain that they will no longer be getting Wtc! Further comments expected & invited.
