Tax Credits: Archived leaflets

This section of the website contains past versions of tax credits leaflets. These can be useful when dealing with old overpayments.

We will continue to add earlier versions of the leaflets as we receive them. In some years, HMRC did not update certain leaflets therefore there may not be a version for each year. Some of the earliest versions of the leaflets below are scanned copies of the original leaflet and therefore may be of a reduced quality.

You can find archived versions of COP 26 in the Codes of Practice section.
