Tax regulations allow an exem ption for children not qualified for Fam ily Allowance of $400.00 as
compared w ith $150.00 for children qualified for Fam ily Allowance. Therefore, a new form TD1-AF
should be completed as soon as possible after such children arrive in England, so th at the parent m ay
receive the benefit of the increased exemption. These forms are available in the U nit O rderly Room and
the Pay Office. Additionally, new Form s TD1-AF are to be completed annually in the m onth of January

filing of a new TD1-AF. Failure to do so before the end of the calendar year for changes of this nature
would m ean th at the credit adjustm ent could not be actioned in the pay account and reim bursem ent
credit would have to be awaited from the Income Tax D epartm ent which could m ean considerable delay
in settlem ent.
Any changes in the foregoing w ill be advised to personnel through the m edium of Station DROs.
