    Working Tax credit overpayment 18th May 17 at 2:18 PM
    Please help I need some advice on the following;
    Working tax credit overpayment for Years 2014/15 and 2015/16
    • Started receiving letters of an overpayment in 2015
    • I was aware of an overpayment in year 2014/15
    • Called WTC to reduce my payments in 2014/15, as I didn’t want to owe money
    • In tax year 2015/16, I stopped WTC for the recovery of overpayment in tax year 2014/15
    • From 5/4/2015 to 14/5/2015 I received weekly payments of £64.59 and 1 payment of £65.60 for WTC and CTC, totalling £ 388.55
    • From 24/05/2015 I only received CTC as I stopped WTC so recovery of overpayments could be recuperated, these payments stopped on 2/7/2015 as my child left college which I inform HMRC and payments stopped.
    • In tax year 2015/16 my totalling CTC payments were £317.
    • The total payments for the tax year 2015/16 totally £705.55. but have been told me that I was overpaid by £812.55
    • I paid back a totally of £862.55, which I thought was for the overpayment in the tax year 2014/15.
    • The totalling overpayment according to HMRC is over £1600

    Do you not have your final award for 2015/16 that shows how it has been broken down?
