    I don't know specifically but I over estimated ours by almost 10k and got about 5k back. I think it depends on your tax bracket as well

    If it's for CCB & CCR then I think they factor in 15% amount to hold back from your payments to prevent you being overpaid

    I'm not too sure if they still calculate FTBs this way, but if they do you will only get additional FTBs if the overestimate pushes you down to a different income band. If you remain in the same band you won't receive anything.

    ahh ok thanks
