Use this form to tell us your income and adjustments for student loan and/or Working for Families Tax Credits (WfFTC) purposes. You can also complete this online.

Adobe Acrobat PDF | 98kb | 4 pages

This form can be completed on-screen by typing content directly into the PDF document. Once you have completed the form it is important that you print it out as you will not be able to save the information you enter into the form.

When to use this form

For WfFTC purposes both you and your spouse or partner need to use this form to tell us your income adjustments for the tax year. The adjustments will help us work out your WfFTC entitlement correctly. 

For student loan purposes you need to provide details of your income adjustments so we can calculate your student loan repayment obligation correctly. Your spouse’s income is not taken into account when assessing your student loan repayment obligation.

Find out if you need to complete this form with your personal tax summary (PTS), IR3 or only the IR215

These adjustments don’t change the amount of income you need to show in your Individual income tax return (IR3) or include in your PTS.

Note: The help text attached to the form is for the 2015 and future tax years.

After you finish

Once you have completed the form it is important that you print pages 1 and 2 and send them to us as you will not be able to save the information you entered. You will need to change your print settings so as to only print the form and not the completion note pages.
