Hearty congratulations to Tax Credit Casualties for also being nominated for the New Statesman New Media Awards, they are nominated in the Community Activism category.
"Tax Credit Casualties provide a life line to those who have, through no fault of their own, received overpayments of tax credits. Claimants in this position are routinely told that they can not appeal against this and must pay back the money immediately.
Tax Credit Casualties provide advice and guidance to enable individuals to fight their own cases, support so that individuals do not feel alone and also campaign for a fairer system. They even act take on cases for those individuals who are unable to fight for themselves. All this is provided in their own time and is funded through their own pockets."
Every bit of publicity they get is generating more disputes with HMRC - they advise me that the number of disputes are now at the highest level for five years.
A little bird also tells me that there is a film being worked on with the BBC....watch this space.
In my view, they well deserve to win the award. The dream ticket would be for both of our sites to win...one can dream!
Tax does have to be taxing.
