    Question CCTB question

    I haven't been on here for a long time, been busy but I have a question and was wondering if someone here had an answer. It's about the child tax benefit
    I have 3 LO's. I have received a notice of assessement regarding my oldest one and have been repaying it every month. The government is using my entire CCTB check to pay themselves back. But it has been brought to my attention today that they shouldn't be doing that. They are using my 2 little one's baby bonus to payback a debt that only concerns my oldest one.
    Anybody knows if they can do that or not?
    I will call them tomorrow but every time i have talked to someone regarding this i have received a diff. answer..

    I am pretty sure you are right about them not being able to take the whole thing. I think they can only take a certain percentage as well.

    not sure if this helps. but anything over 7 years they cant do anything about.
    But I know that if the government pays you too much then you have to pay it back. But yes its true what a PP said.. they can only take a % not the whole thing.

    well i just called and apparently if you're a low income family they only keep 50% of the baby bonus, we are not considered low income so they retain all of my baby bonus to pay back my daughter's debt..Makes no sense to me, why not just keep her share and still give me what my sons would get...
    Gotta love the gouvernement
