Yes, unfortunately it will.  Your child’s room will be deemed a spare room as far as the Bedroom Tax is concerned.  You are not alone in your predicament since it is estimated that around 660,000 people of working age, who claim housing benefit, will be affected with the majority losing £14 per week – or £728 a year, making this tax one of the most unpopular of its type.
