Tax rates and tax codes for individuals

New Zealand's laws require people and organisations to pay taxes. The government uses these taxes to pay for government expenditure, including public services in New Zealand such as education, hospitals and healthcare, roads and welfare. Almost all New Zealanders make a contribution to these services through the taxes they are required to pay by law.
