Resolved Question:

I am challenging a decision of The Tax Credits Office that I have been overpaid Tax Credits totalling over £9000.00, and I ask them to look at their decision again and change it.
They refuse to change their decision, so I asked them to forward my case to the First-tier Tribunal for a hearing, and again they refused.
Is there an Ombusman to whom I can complain to or some other Authority?

Dear Friend,

Hello and welcome. Thank you for providing an opportunity to assist you.

Yes, you can certainly dispute it. They have a procedure for that.

You can ask the Tax Credit Office to reconsider an overpayment decision if you think they made a mistake or gave you incorrect advice. Since you have already done this, you may file your dispute officially by and send dispute form TC846 to:

Overpayments Dispute Team
Tax Credit Office
HM Revenue and Customs
Preston
PR1 4AT.

You can do this online as well. Please refer the following link.
