Quick question - tax on benefits?
I was hoping someone here could answer a quick question I have. My first baby is due in a few months and I'm hoping to get child benefits as I will be out of work for a few months. I was wondering if the child benefits will be taxable on top of my normal income? I've looked at sites like this one ( https://www.income-tax.co.uk/ - has been extremely useful with budgeting for the baby recently!) but there isn't an option for benefits. I'll be on paid maternity leave but as I'm told children are rather expensive, so hopefully will be able to cope with it! My husband will be staying in full time work which will definitely help. Anyway, hope to hear from someone soon
