The Mirror reports that half a million UK families are at risk of tax credits being BLOCKED as renewal deadline looms. The article warns that if renewal packs don’t reach HMRC by the end of the month, households could be sanctioned and asked to pay any sums received since April back.
As the Mirror highlights, these are the rules and the process is clear – indeed this is the law. If people, don’t follow the rules they’ll be seriously inconvenienced and penalized. No doubt, there will be hardship cases that are highlight by the left-wing media, blaming the failures on the government’s austerity programme.
