Our tax credits used for ex’s children
September 26, 2011
Me and my husband have 3 children living with us, two from my ex one child together. However we have been paying for my husband’s 3 children through csa and now they have reassessed the case and are now taking our tax credits, not working tax credits, we get for our household now in to account.
How is this when the case were assessed two months ago and it was never taken in to account then?
This is not fair as we get the credits to help with our household. The children’s parents get their tax credits for their household so its like they are getting double as they dont have to tell anyone what csa they get.
We are strugling to get by and i feel it’s our children (the nrp getting done over) they are now going to get a extra 750.00 a year from our family’s tax credits.
HOW IS THIS FAIR?
