Tax Credits Overpayments - What should I do if I don't think I have been overpaid?
Information on tax credit overpayments and what to do if you think you have been overpaid.
What should I do if I don't think I have been overpaid?
You can’t appeal against a decision to recover a tax credit overpayment, even if the overpayment was the result of HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) making an error. However, you can appeal if you think there was a mistake in calculating the amount of tax credits you were entitled to and therefore there should be no overpayment.
