Back to Making Tax Simpler

Welcome to this online forum

Do you receive Working for Families payments?  Do you pay or receive Child Support?  Are you paying back a Student Loan?

The Government wants to improve how Inland Revenue manages these payments and wants to know what you think about the way it proposes to do this.

The proposed changes are part of an overall modernisation of the tax system to make it simpler for you.   

This consultation site outlines the proposed changes. This is your opportunity to tell us what you think. 

If you want a quick overview of the proposals for Working for Families and Child Support watch the two short videos on this page or read a summary of all the main proposals in the sidebar. 

You can also read the full details in the discussion document Making Tax Simpler: Better administration of social policy.

There are three ways to give feedback.  You can answer some quick questions in our online survey,  or respond to the questions in the pages of this online forum or send in a written submission.  Do all three if you wish – the Government wants to hear your views.

If you know anybody else who might be interested in giving feedback please tell them.  We’ve translated some of this material into other languages and produced a poster to advertise this consultation.

Please consider the proposals and tell us what you think by Friday 15 September 2017.
