  Use this worksheet to calculate your student loan repayments if your income between 1 April 2008 and 31 March 2009 was
  from salary, wages, benefits-, student allowance, taxable pension or interest, dividends or taxable Māori authority distributions.
  If you received any other type of income, such as rental or self-employed income, you must file an Individual tax return (IR 3).
  Before completing this worksheet you’ll need to complete your Personal tax worksheet (IR 746).
  This worksheet is for your information only and will give you an indication of your student loan end-of-year calculation for 2009.
  If you request a personal tax summary, the outcome may be different from what you’ve calculated here. Please don’t send

If Box 8 is larger than Box 6, the difference will be your 2009 student loan overpayment (credit).
If Box 6 is larger than Box 8, the difference will be your 2009 student loan end-of-year repayment (debit).
If Box 6 is a credit, add any amount in Box 8 to Box 6. This will be your 2009 student loan overpayment (credit).

What to do next
  If the amount in Box 6 or Box 8 is a credit you need to request a personal tax summary to get your refund, otherwise your
• overpayment will be left in your account to reduce your loan. In some cases, there will be interest charged on the refunded
  amounts—see note 5 on the back of this worksheet.
• If you work out that you have an end-of-year repayment (debit), read note 6 on the back of this worksheet.
  If the amount in Box 6 is a debit of $1,000 or more, you’ll have to make interim repayments. See note 7 on the back of this

5. Overpayment
This means you’ve paid more on your student loan than you’re
required to for the 2009 tax year. This can either be credited to
your loan or refunded to you when you request a personal tax
summary (PTS).
A PTS will also square up your income tax account. If you
request a PTS and it results in tax to pay, you’ll have to pay the
amount by 7 February 2010 or, if you have a tax agent, it’s due
by 7 April 2010.
Any refund of an overpayment for the 2006 and 2007 tax years
will have interest charged on the refunded amount unless
you’re requesting the refund due to hardship reasons. Interest
charged on the refunded amount won’t be eligible for write-off
under the interest-free student loan policy.
