Tax Guide for Students - new website
10 February 2014
As part of an HMRC funded project and sponsored by the Chartered Institute of Taxation, the Low Incomes Tax Reform Group (LITRG) has launched a new website ‘Tax Guide for Students’ (TGFS) which offers guidance to help further and higher education students navigate through the complexities of tax.
The website covers areas such as:
- Tax essentials
- Volunteering & training
- Tax credits & benefits
- Tax refunds
- Types of student
- Going abroad
- Other income
- Student loans.
The website also includes a section on taking a job in tax with stories and testimonials from people who are currently employed or have had a very successful career in the world of tax.
It is easy to access via laptops, mobile phones and tablets and it is a handy place to pick up valuable resources and extra assistance on specific topics that students may come across.
There is a separate section for student advisers and for those engaged in helping and supporting students.
Factsheets are available for download; and included are podcasts and templates to help with tax questions and queries to HMRC.
