    Have you had to pay a fine relating to the High Income Child Benefit Tax Charge? Tell an MP... 21st Aug 19 at 2:11 PM
    Failing to register your liability to the High Income Child Benefit Charge through a tax return can result in a fine.

    On 3 September, Conservative MP for South Thanet Craig Mackinlay is leading a debate in Westminster Hall on the issue, and wants to hear about your experiences. He gave us the following statement:

    I share the concerns of those residents in South Thanet who have received financial penalties for failing to register their liability to the High Income Child Benefit Charge, who have previously, as routine PAYE taxpayers, had no need to complete a tortuous tax return. I want to shine a light on this complex area of interaction between tax and benefit rules and these unjust fines.

    Have you received a fine after failing to register your liability to the High Income Child Benefit Charge through a tax return? Did you feel the penalty was justified?
    We will pass on your comments and experiences to Craig Mackinlay MP who will use them to inform his speech, he may even quote you directly during the debate. Links to watch the debate and read the transcript will be posted here when they become available.

    Many thanks in advance for any input or insight you'd be able to share.
