Over payments of tax credits

S Fowell made this Rhyddid Gwybodaeth request to Cyllid a Thollau Ei Mawrhydi

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

We're waiting for S Fowell to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear HM Revenue and Customs,

Having looked at your website you make very clear what you expect from anybody receiving tax credits but fail to tell people of their rights, nowhere on your page does it tell people that they are entitled to a Subject Access Request. This is everyone's right yet you fail to tell them, you send out demands for payment and tell people they can appeal, MR and tribunal yet you fail to tell people that they have the right to all of the information you hold on them, not letting them be aware that they have the right to check your work has been done accordingly, why are you withholding peoples rights?

Yours faithfully,

S Fowell

Dear Mr Fowell

Thank you for your email.

The government website www.gov.uk contains guidance on how to make a Subject Access Request at the following page:

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/hmrc-subject...

The website also contains HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC's) Information Disclosure Guide. This Guide gives HMRC's legal framework for disclosing information:

https://www.gov.uk/hmrc-internal-manuals...

A customer can contact HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) if they have a query about a tax decision. If they don’t understand the decision they can also get advice from HMRC or professional help:

https://www.gov.uk/tax-help

Finally, HMRC will send a decision letter that will inform the customer if they can appeal against a tax decision. Here is a link to that page:

Dear HM Revenue and Customs,
Thank you for your quick reply, you have sent links to various parts of the government website explaining peoples rights yet you have failed to answer the question.
I simply asked why you do not give out peoples rights when you are demanding an over payment from them and i would be grateful if you could answer the question

Yours faithfully,

What I left out of my reply was that we don't deal with non-FOI
matters. Shall I reply to this second email saying that?
Mr F's first email attached.

Thanks

Dear HM Revenue and Customs,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of HM Revenue and Customs's handling of my FOI request 'Over payments of tax credits'.

I simply asked why HMRC do not let claimants know that they are entitled to a Subject Access Request when they are demanding over payments to be paid back, It is every body's right to have this and are not being told about it.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/o...

Dear [email address] on behalf of FOI Team,

I think you do not understand the question so i will try and make it simple for you, i know that HMRC has a separate page for subject access requests but this is a general question for everyone as not everyone is aware of what a subject access request is, why do you not tell claimants about subject access requests when demanding over payments back, you demand all paperwork and history from a claimant yet fail to let the claimant know that they are entitled to all the data you hold on them. As i see it, if the HMRC want to be transparent and open, a link to the SAR being given to the claimant when making demands from them for an over payment should be standard practice.

Yours sincerely,

S Fowell

Dear [email address] on behalf of FOI Team,

Thank you for your reply, i can see that all you are interested in is going around the houses and are not prepared to answer the question, this has become very clear and shows to me that you have not, and will carry on not informing claimants of their right to a SAR whether they know about it or not, thank you for your time.

Yours sincerely,

S Fowell
