Hi everyone Really need some advice. The background is: - i was claiming tax credits as a single parent of 1 child - in September 2009 i rang the helpline to advise that my partner had moved in. They advised me to put it in writing which i did straightaway. - in February i returned to work full time so i sent a letter advising this as well as reminding them that my partner had moved in (as I had not heard anything) -few weeks later i received a letter asking for details of when my partner moved in so i sent them the copy i had of the 1st letter sent in September - i've since received a letter saying i'd been overpaid by approx £1500 and they want the payment NOW. Since Februaury we have not received any money whatsoever even though I requested to apply as a couple (i suplied all my partner's details).
Can someone please tell me what I should do? I am planning on ringing the helpline asap but I was wanting some advice before I do.
