The LITRG is urging parents and carers to check their position before applying for the new Tax-Free Childcare (TFC) as they may find other benefits they currently receive are stopped or that other childcare schemes can offer more financial support than TFC.
The LITRG has highlighted the huge amount of work to be done in order to implement the recommendations and deliver the plan set out by the Government in its response to the Matthew Taylor review ‘Good Work’. This will require Government departments to work together and LITRG has called for a person or body to be appointed to co-ordinate and oversee the implementation of the plan.
The Low Incomes Tax Reform Group (LITRG) is strongly urging taxpayers who miss the Self Assessment filing deadline on Wednesday (31 January) but who have a reasonable excuse for the delay, to challenge their penalties for late filing without delay.

While the 31 January 2018 deadline for submitting your 2016/17 tax return and paying your tax bill is well known, the experience of the Low Incomes Tax Reform Group (LITRG) is that many newcomers to Self-Assessment fail to realise they may have to pay some money in advance towards their next tax bill on that day, too.
