    Can landlord claim WTC? 8th Jan 18 at 8:42 PM
    Hi all,
    Top and bottom of it is I lost my job a couple of years ago, struggling to find work, but have been renting out Mrs Chipolatta's flat, so have about 5k a year coming in from that.
    Been doing odd jobs cash in hand for folk locally, nothing stable or well paid, not been claiming benefits or tax credits, but push has come to shove, and I've put my pride aside and decided that we really do need extra money coming in.
    As a pro landlord (I guess), can we claim WTC? I punched the numbers into the online Tax Credit Calculator, and if I click the 'self employed' button and say I'm doing 25 hours a week, then the computer says 'yes'... So can a landlord claim WTC?

    Thanks for the advice Comms69...
    Badmemory, yep, her flat. I don't think that affects any WTC though does it?
