    Hello!

    Can anyone help with this (surprise surprise) tax credit query.

    If someone has received Working Tax Credit including the £21.90 premium for over 30 hours, and is subsequently given a new decision letter in which they have been overpaid WTC,

    e.g.
    Award £1500.00
    Already paid £1500.00
    To pay £0.00
    The previous posts before this one, suggest the value of the WTC should then be reduced to £0.00, but should they still get the disregard or not?

    Many thanks
    Steph and Debs

    Providing they are still working more than 30 hours the additional disregard on their earnings would apply in their HB/CTB assessment. As I understand, the deciding factor is if they are working more than 30 hours or not. It is not dependant on whether they get a 30 hour premium in their WTC award.
