HMRC becomes headmaster with online tax lessons for students
Site aims to teach high schools students the importance of taxes to society
HM Revenue and Customs has launched an online scheme for secondary school
students to learn about tax issues.
The resource will contain modules on income tax, national insurance and tax
and society. Financial secretary to the Treasury Stephen Timms said it would
help young people learn about how taxes contribute to society’s needs.
‘Nearly one million pupils leave education and enter the tax system each
year. By gaining a better understanding of tax and national insurance, they will
be much better prepared for their life ahead,’ he said.
