Tax credits: improving delivery and choice

Close date: 5 September 2008

The Government is consulting on plans for improvements to Child Tax Credit and Working Tax Credit, which were introduced in April 2003. The proposals include additional support to help customers navigate the tax credit system and simplification of aspects of the tax credits system to make it easier to understand and work with. In particular, the Government is exploring the scope for simplifying the delivery of childcare support through the childcare element of the Working Tax Credit.
