Paying tax Watch
I have been at my summer job for about 6 weeks now. I finished my A-levels in June and am going to be a full time student at University in October. Should I be paying tax on my wages? My manager is rubbish about things like this. Apparently, I can claim the tax back or something? I think I am on an emergency tax code as this is my first job. Can somebody who knows more about these sorts of thing help me. I don't have a clue!
It all depends on the money you earn. You see, you should have received a letter from the Inland Rev saying how much you can earn before you get taxed. However if you/your employer haven't completed a P45 you'll be emergency taxed...but you can claim this back.
My bank got in contact with me for this, all I had to do was fill in a form and hand it in.
Inland Revenue then sent me another form to confirm what I've been doing for the last year (I was working then I stopped to go to uni - now uni and p/t work)
