    Has anybody done there's yet?
    I did mine last wk over the phone thought I would get it out the way this year as I left it till last thing last year.
    I get paid on Wednesday child tax and OH working tax go's in my bank too (I'm not daft lol)
    Got my normal money
    Just looked this morning and they have put an extra payment of £360 in today
    The letters never come till ages later I know from other year so
    Have no idea why I'm excited for the extra money we go away in a wk but they always scare me when they said give you stuff
    Any body else done there's ?

    We haven't done ours yet. If you get any back it will have been based on what you earned over the last year..so if you earned less than the estimate you gave them last year you should get some back i think. I'm interested to see what we'll get back as i've been on maternity allowance and apparently they don't count that as pay iykwim?

    Take it and enjoy i say! lol

    I got extra before my letter came thru too! Although for some
    Reason they'd randomly put my
    Payments up a few weeks before too!

    we did ours today was estimated last year as it was the first year we had hubby down for 12000 he only made 8000 so were hoping a nice fat back payment will come our way xxx

    I havent done mine as it all seems a little complicated...

    Is it easier doing it over the phone do you think? If you get things like housing benefit do you need all that info there in front of you? Urgh, I hate tax credit stuff. They put mine down by over £10 a week a while ago and they didn't explain why. If they bumped it back up that'd be nice :)
