Renter's tax credit

    What else would I be doing on the first of January but looking at my tax, lol.

    I'm looking at the renter's tax credit and the rules seem clear to me. In that I can't claim the tax credit if I am receiving HAP.

    I was awarded HAP in December. So going through the application for renter's tax credit, it asks me am I receiving HAP. I click yes because I obviously am. But I was only awarded it in December. So that's 11 months where I wasn't receiving HAP.

    This seems very unfair if I can't claim the tax credit for the 11 months I wasn't receiving HAP. I have contacted revenue but not sure what they can do really. They won't hardly change the whole application to ask about when someone was awarded HAP.

    Is anyone else having the same problem in applying? I guess it's still early to get an answer to all this.
