    Should i be paying tax on this ??

    Right after talking with guys at both my jobs aswell as looking about on the net etc i still cant work out if i should be paying tax or not

    For my first part time job im a delivery driver for PizzaHut I only do 8hours a week and get paid close to £100 every 2weeks. i dont show as paying taxd on this job

    For my second part time job at halfords where the hours change but for Eg this month i was paid £549 and taxed £118

    I dont think i should be paying anywhere near that amount of tax on what im earning!? I sent away a P46 when i started there but im still on BR ?

    so ye basicly.....am i getting ass ******* by the Taxman and the gov like i seem to at every point in my life or is there something wrong ?

    That tax sounds about right mate, depending how much you earn over the year youll possibly qualify for a refund too

    it maye be that the inland revenue think halfords is your second job, so youll get taxed more

    i work for 3 different contractors, and the works seasonal so when i start doing regular work for one of the agencys i work for, ie ill do say 4 month with one company then move my tax code, 4 months for the other then move my tax code and 4 months for the 3rd again ill move my tax code,

    youll be able to claim it all back if your been over taxed

    Based on that you would earn over £9k in a year, so yes you should be paying tax. Although that does sound a lot, £1.5k in tax over the year. You should only be taxed on the last 2k your earning IIRC, so you should pay about £400.

    Very rough figures, but thats how I would see it. Not sure if you get hit harder though because the income is over two jobs instead of one?

    Thats about right then with my above figures, £30-£40 a month would be £360-£480 a year

    alright am i right in thinking the tax is taken from what i earn over the whole year ?

    the fact im doing to jobs at the same time wouldnt change this ?

    ye i can deal with £30-£40 being taken because i know everyone ends up paying tax but right now it feels im getting scewed at ever bend.

    as above, 20% in my mind is the going rate, i alway work my after tax pennys out at 19% this is to include national insuranse also,

    and it generally come up to +/- a few ££
