Tax Credits

Is it right to take tax credit from low paid workers?

Nov 20, 2015
The Government wants to take tax credits away from low paid families who are in work.
 
Over 3 million families nationally will be affected by changes to tax credits losing an average of £1,300. In Hull 10,500 families with 18,300 children will be hit.
 
The changes are complex but include reducing the amount you earn before tax credit starts to be withdrawn. From 2016 anyone who earns over £12,125 will start to see tax credit fall; currently you must £16,105 before that happens.
