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
  • Working
  • 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.

LITRG would welcome feedback on the TGFS website and have produced a short survey with the chance to win high street vouchers to the value of £50.
