More than 750,000 people renewed their tax credits online this year, almost doubling last year’s figure.
Half of them used the most popular methods of getting online – mobile phone or tablet.
Another million people renewed by post and more than 950,000 people used HM Revenue and Customs’ tax credit hotline.
Anyone who has not yet renewed their tax credits but should have done so should call HMRC’s helpline on 0345 300 3900 to ensure their payments do not stop.
