I'm soon to be starting a job. It's Monday to Friday 9-5 with an hours unpaid lunch and 2 x 15 min breaks. They didn't say if the breaks were paid which may mean they are, seeing as they specifically said the lunch wasn't. Anyway it's £9.64 an hour, so we're talking £313.30 - £337.40 before tax.

I'm a 19 year old student at university in Ireland. Does this affect my tax?

The job is only for 10 weeks, so you could say whatever I earn in that time is per annum.

What's the tax going to be? And if I benefit from a lower tax, does it get taken off my pay or do I have to reclaim it or something? The job is at a university library.

Thanks a bunch

You don't benefit from lower tax simply for being a student, if that's what you're thinking. If your income goes over the earnings threshold, you start to pay tax on it. Britain has the PAYE scheme, which means its all deducted auutomatically before you see it.

I shouldn't think on a ten weekjob you'll pay tax at all. In England, you have to be earning over a hundred pounds a week or around that to startpaying in come tax.

I'm not sure if it differs for Ireland, but I wouldnt have thought you'll have to pay anything
