Right, I have been paying a standard tax for a good number of years but my life has been turned on its head by the sudden appearance of my 12 year old on my doorstep. Am I entitled to any kind of tax benefit etc now that my daughter is living with me? I have tried looking online but I am totally con bloody fused by it all! How do I get any child benefits stopped to my ex who is still claiming tax relief etc despite my daughter having lived with me since July? Again, looked online but could not find much. Many thanks in advance.
