Renew your tax credits by 31 July – it’s too important to forget Image: Open Government Licence v3.0

Just seven days to go before the 31 July 2019 deadline

With just seven days to go until the 31 July renewal deadline, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) is urging customers to renew their tax credits – or their payments will stop.

Tax credits help working families with targeted financial support and more than 1,301,072 customers have already renewed their tax credits.

But 760,157 still need to renew in the next week. They can do it any time, day or night, through HMRC’s online services, including the HMRC App.

Angela MacDonald, HMRC’s director general of Customer Services, said:

“The 31 July deadline is fast approaching and renewing your tax credits is something too important to forget. HMRC support is available at all times of the day and night via GOV.UK and the smartphone app to help customers get their renewals right.

“It’s fantastic that so many customers have already renewed their tax credits. I urge those who are yet to renew to do so as soon as possible, in order to avoid having their payments stopped.”
