Tax credits

Asked for the Prime Minister’s views on HM Revenue and Customs’ (HMRC) error on tax credits, the PMS said that HMRC would be investigating what happened, and that they did not believe there were any risks of identity theft resulting from the mistake. The PMS also highlighted that it was the commitment in the coalition agreement to reform the administration of tax credits as the system had been subject to considerable fraud, error and overpayments in the past.
