    No tax up to a certain amount of hours i believe, not 100% sure though

    You dont pay tax until you exceed your tax free limit.

    Correct after 25hrs its taxable

    Everyone gets a personal tax allowance of £6475 for the tax year 09-10, if you earn less than this you can reclaim any Income tax paid :thumbsup:

    Students pay tax like anybody else - once they get beyond their tax free limit.

    Everyone has their own tax free limit depending on your code. Do they know you are a student. Did you pay PAYE or NI etc...

    ...hmmm!

    don't know

    well when i used to work i did 20hrs...when i did overtime usually 45 hrs during holidays they tax'd the carp out of me

    hence why i said you get taxed after a certain number of hrs you work and earn

    It is all down to earnings etc and %. The more you earn, the more you pay as you pay on the percentage of your wages. Everyone has their own tax code (although these are bracketed by HMRC) so yours was probably maybe even emergency tax as you didnt have a code.

    It might be worth calling your tax office and seeing if this is the case as you may be due a rebate. It is free to do but it takes a few months.

    wrong i work 21.25 hours per week and pay tax of about £100 - £120

    depends on what you earn, usually over £6000 per year

    Higher education is what university education is called, whilst most sixth form and college education is "further education". Personally if somebody describes themself to me as a student, I would always assume that means they are at a university.

    [COLOR="Red"]I said I was getting a Vantage the day before I got it. What are the chances of me 'finding' a Vantage the next day and getting some pics with it unless I was going to buy one?

    You know I have a Vantage.
