Students – don’t pay tax you don’t owe on income from summer jobs

To earn extra cash, many undergraduates take summer jobs.  Large numbers are unaware that they don’t need to pay tax if their annual income is less than £7,475.

You will need to fill in a form P38 (S) which you can download from HMRC website.  If you inadvertently find yourself paying tax, all is not lost, you can reclaim any tax paid by sending HMRC a P50, available online at www.hmrc.gov.uk/pdfs/p50.pdf.
