Answers for all your UK tax questions


UK tax typically involves the payments made by citizens to the different areas within the United Kingdom government. The central government deals mainly with income tax, national insurance payments, and corporation taxes. The local government deals with taxes taken from government funds, grants, and assorted charges and fees.


In the UK, taxes are paid on income, but not on every type of income. You’ll owe the government for money earned directly from employment, whether self-employed or otherwise. Pensions and trust benefits are also taxable, but income from tax-exempt accounts, savings account interest, and state benefits can usually be considered tax-free.


If you’re stuck on UK tax questions, the answers are closer to you than you might’ve thought. The tax Experts on JustAnswer can provide assistance with everything from deductions and credits to dependents and tax payer rights in the UK. Regardless of how in-depth your inquiries are, these professionals can assist you with customized guidance that caters to your needs.


You’ll also get help based on your schedule! Ask follow-up questions, and approve payment to your Expert only when you're completely satisfied.
