Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Section 670: Child maintenance bonus

2658.This section sets out the first restriction to the charge to tax on jobseeker’s allowance. It derives from section 617(2)(ad) of ICTA.

2659.The section deals with the exemption from tax for a child maintenance bonus paid under the Child Support Act 1995. That Act provides that the bonus is to be treated as jobseeker’s allowance (or income support). So the exemption appears in this section. The corresponding exemption for a bonus treated as income support is in section 666 – see paragraph 2646.
