    thats so unfair. I'm not too sure about this, I remember that when me and my sis were trying to sort out stuff after my dad died I could not claim anything as it would stop my sister getting her child benefit paid as we were in the same address. I would go to the CAB and get this checked out, its not like you are claiming for the same person. Hope it gets sorted x

    I agree, go to CAB they are really helpful! i know that you can not claim both working tax and child tax (um i think!!) so i claim child tax and my OH claims working tax. Just got £760 paid in as back payments so am veeeeery happy!!!!! so defintely worth trying your best to sort it out!
    Hopefully you can claim, let us know what they say!

    The whole tax thing is like another language to me, its so over my head. That voucher that the government send you is still sitting on my kitchen worktop, I just don't know what to do with it!!! There should be more help available for divvies like me who just can't get to grips with it. Not only that but who has the TIME to sort these things out?!!! :evil:
    Anyway good luck, I hope you get it sorted, let us know....
