How do I claim a working family tax credit?

Answer

To claim tax credits, you have to fill in a claim form. You can only get a tax credits claim pack from the Tax Credit Helpline and not online. Usually, the helpline will also ask you for other information, including your income in the last tax year (a tax year runs from 6 April one year to 5 April the next).
