Yes. Some students and part-time workers are under the wrong impression that they don’t have to pay tax because they only work part time. Students and part-time employees are not automatically tax exempt, regardless if they are under 18 years of age! Everyone who works in the UK is liable to pay income tax, regardless of nationality. However, every taxpayer is also entitled to a personal allowance, which is a tax free amount you can earn in a tax year. If by the end of the tax year your gross income is below the personal allowance threshold and you were still charged income tax, then you may have a valid case for claiming a tax rebate.
