Tax Facts, launched in July 2015, is HMRC’s tax education programme for young people. It has been designed to educate primary and secondary school aged children about how public money is raised and spent and to introduce them, in an interactive and engaging way, to their future responsibilities as taxpayers.

Junior Tax Facts has been designed for primary school children, aged eight to eleven. It introduces them to the subject of taxation by explaining that taxes are the money that people and businesses have to pay to the government.

Junior Tax Facts can be used to support a number of aspects of the primary school curriculum:
• recognising the rights and responsibilities of citizens
• understanding how money plays an important part in people’s lives
• appreciating that resources can be allocated in different ways and that these choices affect individuals, families, communities and our country.

It also supports the promotion of British values by explaining the importance of tax law and the role we all play as taxpayers in paying for the things that are essential for our safety, health and wellbeing.

Junior Tax Facts includes a number of resources that can be used flexibly, depending on the amount of time available and the particular focus of the lesson. The exercises can be included in maths, history, art and design lessons.

I have received very many review requests. I think I was recommended this as I am an accountancy tutor. My students tend to be 25+ which isn't the target age for this. I have looked at it and liked the emphasis on what tax is used to pay for. I have sent it to my local primary school headmaster and have offered to assist his teachers if they wish to use it.
