Hi there,From 2007 to april 2011 I was an international student from the USA here in the UK getting my masters. I received income from investments in the US to live off of as a student. I did not work in the UK during this time. The money I lived off of was taxed in the USA. I am now being told by my accountant that because the money is mine [as opposed to my parents's] I now have to pay taxes for the money I brought in. However, from what I read on other govenment websites, I don't have to pay taxes here. As a student I was also told I didn't have to pay taxes here by my school. Is my accountant just wrong? Please advise.Additionally, assuming I don't have to pay tax on my years as a student, I know that an international resident of the uk (here 183+ days a year) has 7 years being only taxed for money earned or brought into the uk, do my years spent here as a student count as part of these 7 years. Thanks. Athena
