as i am no longer on maternity leave (classed as working), will my tax credits go up or down now that i am not working, all we have is oh wage coming in at 13250 per year, any comments would be great xx

yep it should go up, you get tax credits if the household income is less then ??15,000, so you should get tax credits to make your household income to ??15,000 a year x

if i remember this right - you should now qualify for working tax credit along side child tax credit i think so yes it should go up - i'm back to work in less than two weeks so thats what i'm hoping

im not sure...as i thought you had to be working at least 16 hrs to get working tax credit unless you on maternity leave..you would qualify for child tax credit...ring them, i have found them helpful in past.xx

I tried this and the calculator is not available for Northern Ireland. Typical. I would love my husband to reduce his hours and try and get working tax credits as I would like him to watch Kara when I return to work but I think when I queried it before we still wouldn't as I work full time and earn too much so I am over the threshold.
