    Im 18, currently at uni and only working during the hols, should i still be taxed on my income (have part time job at local club) as im still in full time education. On this weeks paycheck i got over £50 taken off in tax (i only ended up with £135 wages). If I can claim back the tax what forms do I need and how do I get hold of them? Thanks

    Go to you're uni and request a council tax certificate.. They will give you a form to fill and once you have done that they should issue you with the certificate in a week's time. Then you should send that certificate to your local council. Once you've done that you won't have to pay tax anymore until you leave full time education. Hope this helps
    :cool:
    That is a load of crap, yes students don't have to pay council tax but they still have to pay income tax just like anybody else depending on their earnings.

    They'll steal it from you now, but at the end of the tax year if you havent earnt over a certain amount you'll get it all back in a nice cheque. You could always ring and check your tax code also.

    Hi,
    I have this problem too, though I only work during the hols. Usually I fill in a P50 (I think) and claim the tax back once Ive finished working there. Here is some info from the Inland Revenue concerning tax, it's got a bit about students too...

    http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/faqs/general.htm

    Points 1 and 2 may be the most relevant to you though.

    Hope it helps,

    You might already know this, but you'll be liable for income tax if you earn more than £5,035 in the 06/07 tax year. Unless you work all hours under the sun, you shouldn't really go over this working during the holidays.

    You will however pay national insurance, no matter what your annual earnings are, if you're earning over £94 a week (you'll pay 11% on income over this amount).

    If you're earning less than the threshold earning wage (£94/week) you won't get taxed. However, if you are earning more than that a week, you will be taxed. However, if you earn less than a certain amount in the tax year (I think it's around £4,000), you can claim back the tax you made. Yuo can only claim back yor tax once you've got your P45 forms which you get at the end of the tax year (in April) or when you leave your job.

    Before I went to university I worked for woolies and wasn't taxed every month, but now while I'm in the TA while at uni I'm getting taxed.

    How £187 into my bank account sound like for 6months?

    So you people who moan about crap wages, when I'm with the army I'm supposed to get paid about £1.25 an hour, and then I don't even get that because they're buggering around not paying me!

    £1.25 all day for 24 hours. Stop complaining.

    To OP - Ask your employers human resources dept for more help on this issue. If they tell you to contact Inland revenue, contact IR and state your current tax situation.

    What are you on about? I was simply pointing out that the advice given was very wrong, students do have to pay income tax if they earn enough just like the rest of us.
