For individuals & families: As a student
This information will help you if you are studying at a polytechnic, university, college of education, private training institution or wananga.
Receiving income while you're studying
When you receive income that's taxed before you receive it your employer or the person paying you needs to know how much to deduct.
If you're an employee, give your employer a completed Tax code declaration (IR330) form.
|If you don't complete an IR330 or IR330C, your employer or payer will deduct tax at the no-notification rate, which is a much higher rate.|
Use our PAYE / KiwiSaver deductions calculator to work out how much tax will be deducted from your salary or wages.
When you're employed for only part of the year (eg during the summer break), you could be entitled to a tax refund. To apply you will need to request a personal tax summary.
