When to use this calculator

Your Working for Families Tax Credits entitlement is calculated using the information you enter into the calculator today. If any of your details change in the future your entitlement may change.

Check to see whether you are eligible to receive Working for Families Tax Credits before you use the calculator.

This calculator may not provide an accurate result if:

  • the number of dependent children who live with you changes often
  • you qualify for the minimum family tax credit and you receive income other than salary or wages
  • you currently receive Working for Families Tax Credits
  • your "other income" adjustments total to a negative amount.

If any of these apply to you please call us on 0800 227 773 to find out an estimate of your entitlement.

When your situation changes through the year we need to adjust your payments to help you avoid an overpayment at the end of the year. Use the My family details and income service to update your details and calculate your new entitlement accurately.

What you will need
  • details of dependent children who live with you
  • an estimate of your family income for the year - including other income adjustments
  • details of any child support you are entitled to receive or required to pay for the 2015 tax year.

Working for Families
Many families may also be entitled to extra help with housing and childcare costs from Work and Income. These entitlements are available to people who are working, as well as those receiving a benefit.
