Young adults encouraged to develop good financial habits

HMRC have launched its Student Tax Advice campaign to help young adults in education manage tax better and develop good financial habits.

The push is being promoted with Student Tax Aware Week, which until10 March, and is supported by the National Union of Students (NUS), universities and student finance organisations.

A new website aims to become the first port of call for students with questions about tax, and a 'student tax refund calculator' will be made available on social networking utility Facebook, while tax information films can be found on video-sharing site YouTube. (Printed materials are also being distributed around campuses.)

Jane Frost, director of HMRC individuals customer unit said: 'With three quarters of students working, it's vital they understand they have the same responsibilities as everyone else for their tax and national insurance.

'This campaign will make dealing with tax easier for students, from National Insurance to tax refunds. Getting into good financial habits now will serve them well in the future.'
