Searching the Internet with Google
Some sites are huge but you know an answer to what you are looking for is within a said site. You can search google and results only for the site will show, for example to do this you would use the ‘site’ command, in this example hmrc.
site:hmrc.gov.uk “tax credit error”
or perhaps the CAB website you would use
site:citizensadvice.org.uk “tax credit error”
Searches are not case sensitive, Tax Credits, TAX CREDITS and tAx cRediTs will show the same results.
If you are looking for someone in particular use the * symbol, for instance, type into the search box
The paymaster general is *
(the results may not be up to date if a recent change has been made, as the case here)
Use quotation marks, If you search for, say, tax credit overpayments, Google will find all the pages with tax and all the pages with credit and all the pages with overpayments, even if the words are unconnected, producing over 2 million results. However, if you put the search in quotation marks, this tells Google to treat them as one unit. Using "tax credit overpayments" reduces the results to just over 12,000.
If you are struggling to find what you are looking for try the advanced search page
