I had my daughter on the 7th Feb 2011, an filled out all the forms for tax credits an what not. I then received a payment from the 7th to april. so my question is, do i need to fill in a new claim form for the last tax yr? or can i just phone/send in the relevent paper work an it be sorted or will they just carry on paying the certain amount. Nothing has yet gone into my bank apart from the one off payment. Thanks in advanced

tanya1984 - 1590 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) you file taxes in 2011 for the year of 2010, so if your child was born after dec 31, 2010, you can't claim her as a dependant for 2010 and wouldn't get a child tax credit until you file in 2012.
