As a student
If you are studying at a polytechnic, university, college of education, private training institution or wananga, this section has information for students about dealing with tax in New Zealand. Primary, intermediate or secondary school students may also find this information useful.
You can nominate someone to act on your behalf to look after your tax affairs. This could be if you're going overseas for an extended period, if you can't contact us during work hours for any reason, or if you would just like someone other than a tax agent to look after your tax affairs.
