Everybody who works in New Zealand must pay tax on the income they earn. If you earn a salary or wage from your employer, it is most likely your tax will be automatically deducted from your pay. If you are not on a salary, you are responsible for ensuring your tax is paid at the end of each financial year. Different individuals pay different levels of tax, depending on income.
