Student loan repayment deductions from salary and wages are generally considered final, so you may not automatically receive a PTS.
Adjusted net income includes interest, dividends, Māori authority distributions or income as a casual agricultural employee or election-day worker. It also includes any income adjustments which are provided on the Adjust your income IR215.
If you don't have a student loan end-of-year repayment obligation you won't receive an End-of-year repayment obligation notice.
We send your PTS in July because we need to first process all the employment details that your employer sends us at the end of the tax year.
If you don't automatically receive a PTS, you may need to request one in August.
