Tax Credit Claimants must renew their claims by 31st July 2015. For the first time, anyone can renew online at
(www.gov.uk/renewtaxcredits), regardless of the changes they have to make.
On average, it takes ten to twenty minutes to renew online. Previously claimants had to call HMRC or renew by post. HMRC have been sending tax credit renewal packs out to 5.9 million households.
