    Child born between 6th April '86 and 5th April '03? You may benefit from looking at this.

    Had this sent via my local Freecycle group...thought I'd pass it on.
    The year before Tax Credits were introduced there was a different
    non-means tested allowance available which was never advertised by the
    Inland Revenue.
    It is called the Children's Tax Allowance for the Year 2002/3.
    You can still claim this tax allowance before the 31 January 2009
    deadline.
    You need to phone your local Inland Revenue office...you can find the number here WWW.HMRC.GOV.UK and ask them to check whether
    you have already received this allowance and, if not, enquire as to
    what action you need to take.
    You are eligible to claim £520.00 allowance if;
    *You have a child born between 6 April 1986 and 5 April 2003
    *The child lived with you for all or part of 2002/2003
    *You worked and paid tax for all or part of 2002/2003
    *You or your partner earned £6,000 plus in the year 2002/2003 tax year
    You are eligible for the £1,040 allowance if;
    *If you can answer yes to the four questions above, and
    *One of your children was born between 6 April 2002 and 5 April 2003

    Notes:-
    *Making a claim does not affect your current or future entitlement to
    Working or Child Tax credits.
    *Your Marital status is irrelevant
    *You cannot claim the allowance twice and if your final tax code on
    your April 2003 P60 ended in a H or a T, you have already had the
    allowance.
    *This is an easy claim for you to make so do not get duped into paying
    someone to do it for you because they are likely to charge a large
    percentag e for their services.
    Spread the word as this could be something which gives you a little
    extra in these difficult times.

    Good for those that are able to claim this but its about time other types of tax relief were available for people who work full time and pump money into the system.

    Dont get me wrong, I get by comfortably and am happy to pay NI as I know it does a good job for the UK. I am 22 years old and a home owner. I dont say that to boast, I say it because I am proud of what I have achieved at such a relatively young age.

    It is frustrating. I know people have commitments etc but I cant see why the government offer extra incentives for people "returning to work" when they just didnt feel like working anymore and with so many people that are going to be made redundant or have been made redundant I find it unfair.

    This isnt a personal attack on anyone as I dont know their circumstances so dont think this is grounds for an argument.

    Each case is different as you say but for people who are long term unemployed for example its hard emotionally and physically to get back into work, no excuse but its far harder to find work the longer you are unemployed and being unemployed means when you start work you otherwise wont be able to afford to pay rent upfront, buy much food etc and it also helps them pay for transport and uniform etc.

    So many times I hear that people on benefits arent trying hard enough to work or find any reason not to but you have to look at the bigger picture.

    I know. I completely agree. It makes a change to have an actual discussion with someone when talking about something quite contentious.

    Its very difficult for those out of work to return because its a completely different way of life for them and like you said, there isnt much difference between a wage and benefits when you tot up travelling, expenses etc.

    I was referring to those who screw the state for every penny they can get and are benefit cheats. No excuse whatsoever for a benefit cheat.

    I didnt say it wasnt...I said it was about time there were other forms of tax relief availble.

    Interesting!!

    thankyou

    i have just rang the tax office to be told that i am not entitled to this money as i earned £50 under the £6000 that you needed to earn in that year. and that frustates me as i have 4 kids but i have worked all through my pregancies and then gone back to work,even though cut my hours down to part time to be told that for the sake of £50 that just takes the biscuit
