Tax Rebates & Refunds

Full time students rarely earn enough to be eligible to pay tax

When you are a full time student, it can be very difficult to get enough hours outside of the time you devote to study and to socialising to work a job. However, most students do find that they need to have a job while they study rather than getting by on student loans and whatever they manage to earn over the summer.

The fact is that students are subject to the same rules as everyone else when it comes to paying tax. If you earn over the free tax allowance threshold then you have to contribute a portion of your earnings to the tax man. Being in full time study does not exempt you from this rule and this is something you must be aware of.

However, since you are already struggling for time so that you can get enough hours to get by on while you are at university, it is really unlikely that you will actually earn over the free tax allowance threshold. If you are taxed without earning over this threshold then a mistake has been made somewhere and you need to act to get a tax refund.
