⚠️ Our Tax Guide for Students guidance has moved to the LITRG website. If you are a student or have a student loan and have a query about any of the issues we cover in this section, please let us know by filling in the Contact Us form.
Students: other income
As a student you may be receiving income from your parents and family, or through a scholarship or bursary, as interest on your savings or from letting out a room. But do you know if you should be paying tax on this income? And if you are paying tax, should you be or are you entitled to a refund?
What information and help can I find in this section?
We cover what other income you may be receiving, whether tax should be deducted from it and how much should be being taxed.
This section of the website contains two pages which are of particular interest to students:
- My family has given me some money: might I need to pay tax on it?
- Do I have to pay tax on scholarships and awards?
Elsewhere on this website we cover:
- What tax is payable on savings such as bank and building society interest on our Savings and tax page
- What tax is payable on property income, such as letting out a room? on our Property income page
- How to claim a refund if you have paid too much tax?
