Tax credits application problem

Options
I have recently had our second child and given up work which means we are now eligible for tax credits. I have received the form but it is asking for our income for the last financial year and if I give this information we won't get anything as I was working then. I need to know how I give the figures for the forthcoming year. There is a box for estimated earnings but it is only for the time since the financial year started which is pointless when we're only about 6 weeks in. I have tried ringing the tax office a few times for advice but been on hold for about an hour each time then get cut off! Please help.

    I believe you have to apply then you will get nil award through then you ring and amend your estimated income ?

    Thank you both so much for the replies, it is massively appreciated. I'll submit last years figures then wait for them to send the letter and giive them a call with the estimated figures for this year.
