    Just rang tax credits to tell them I'm due to go on mat leave from the 5th o december and all was good apprently they change it now cause of how long is left of the tax year the first 100 of all your mat leave isn't taxable income so effectively im only earning 28.50 a month she said it's for 28 weeks smp just checked online it says 39 weeks for smp that's right isnt it so confusing last year when I was on mat leave obviously didn't have to change any thing like this apparently 2 weeks ago they had been over paying me Which is ridiculous cause all the money I ever got off tax credits went on my daughters childcare why is tax credits so confusing lol xx

    They really are a pain in the arse! I've never really understood how they work it all out but I'm looking forward to getting a bit more money once bubs arrives - we're going to need it, SMP is just a joke! X

    You need to ring them to say theres another baby when they're born but Im not telling them im on mat leave until June or whenever it is when you have to give them your annual wage.
