    Tax credits and income 10th Aug 18 at 7:25 PM
    Can anyone advise where I stand with the following:-My husband is likely to earn more this year than the estimate I gave in April by approx 1000-1500.
    He changed job last year finally securing full time employment,whilst I am a receiving carers allowance.
    We have 3 children with 1 receiving the disability element.
    His earnings are as follows:-

    16/17 7425
    17/18 11377
    17/18 estimated 17000 in April

    If any other info is needed please just let me know,many thanks

    You are assuming they no longer qualify for WTC - they do qualify for it and the elements will continue to be included in their award but they won't receive any payments of WTC due to the level of their income. They are not a CTC only case because they still qualify for WTC.
