Most members will know that we are - despite having over 100,000 unique visitors to our website, having had contact with 1,000s of people who are disputing recovery of overpayments, and having this active forum - all volunteers and doing this in our spare time. So we don't have the resources that huge charities and welfare agencies do, and rely on our members to help us flag up injustices and lobby politicians and the media to give us our deserved Amnesty for all non-fraudulent overpayments.

Therefore, please help us to help you, and FINALLY sort out the tax credit mess. There's a letter here to send to your MP, and all you need to do is to add your details, personalise or alter it as much as you want, and either post or email it to your MP - and let us know her or his response (ali@taxcc.org or by posting here).

Here's the link you'll need:

Here's proof it works: (from an email exchange)


Dear Alan

I have been a TCC supporter for a long time. I did so because of the huge problems that many Blaydon constituents were bringing to my office. I will definitely support their call for an amnesty

Dave Anderson, MP for Blaydon


Thanks!

And here's the link again:

<< I will definitely support their call for an amnesty

and, just for the record, Dave Anderson is a LABOUR MP.

(He's also a Makem, but I'm prepared to overlook that )

In this way the people will not see those rights and freedoms being removed until past the point at which these changes cannot be reversed."

Yes, there are a few Labour MPs who also support tax credit justice, including Diane Abbott, Jon Cruddas, Michael Jabez Foster and... Dave Anderson. Though I must confess I haven't a clue what a "Makem" is. No doubt Alan will enlighten us. Sounds like something out of "Lord of the Rings".

Aye ... right - pay attention there at the back & I'll larn ye!!

It's all to do with dialect & pronunciation - i.e. how words are spoken.

On Tyneside, the word "MAKE" is pronounce "MYEK" and the word TAKE is pronounced "TYEK" while on Wearside e.g. Sunderland, those same words are pronounced "MACK" and "TACK" so anyone from Wearside is said to be a Mackem.

Mackems are a bit like Geordies - but without the brain - and are ok as long as you remember to take them the right way, which is usually with both hands firmly round the throat!!

Lol, only a Geordie could come up with a name for someone based entirely on how they pronounce their words!

Growing up first in Essex then down South, it never failed to amuse me that my Brummy parents had a BAFF while I had a BAAAAAARTH (= bath).

Strange too how some pronounce "scone" like "groan" or "stone", and others like "gone", with each person accusing the other of being "posh" for saying it any other way!

Anyway, thanks for enlightening me.

We need People Power to win our Tax Credit Overpayment Amnesty at long last.

"HMRC has not made significant progress in reducing the backlog of cases of potentially overpaid or underpaid tax from 2007-08 and earlier. At 31 March 2010, 18.2 million cases were awaiting action."

It's down to us - all of us - to make sure that the honest majority of those 18.2 MILLION overpaid families know they have RIGHTS and can WIN A WRITE-OFF!

Please pass on that You must be logged in to see this link. is there to help! Please get your MP on board. How much more money will be wasted chasing 18.2 million families when it should be written off?

Just seen that that's apparently income tax, not overpaid tax credits, but surely a department which is pursuing all that unpaid tax can't afford to devote scarce resources harrassing some of the poorest families in Britain for tax credit clawbacks?

Please don't forget the link above! You can sign in easily, rate the suggestion with five stars (if you would) and leave a comment!

And whilst fighting your tax credit dispute, please don't surrender to the HMRC bullies if unlucky enough to receive one of the countless millions of demands for under-collected tax due to further HMRC errors!

Here's how to do it:

"...taxpayers could dispute extra tax charges by claiming on a ESC19 form that they had supplied information in good faith and retrospective bills should be dropped."

And here's some guidance from LITRG if, along with your tax credit overpayment bill, you also get sent a demand for extra tax which HMRC feels it should have taken off you:
