Who can get tax credits?
Nine out of ten families with children get tax credits, but you don't need to have children to qualify. You may also qualify if you are working and earning low pay.
The amount of tax credits you get depends on things like:
- how many children you have living with you
- whether you work - and how many hours you work
- if you pay for childcare
- if you or any child living with you has a disability
- if you're aged 50 plus and are coming off benefits
