How to Contact Child Tax Credit

To apply for tax credits, there is an online form you can use, but you may prefer to call the Child Tax Credit contact number of 0870 258 0113. This number is also for general queries about the benefit.

When you call to make a claim, you will likely be asked for your National Insurance number, details of any benefits you receive, childcare payment details, how many hours a week you work and your income in the last tax year. This information is used to find out how much you are likely to get.

If you already have a claim, the Child Tax Credit phone number offers a quick and easy way to inform HMRC of any changes to your circumstances that may affect your entitlement.
