Inland Revenue Service Changes & Updates
For a few days over the Easter break, the Inland Revenue will be making system changes as we continue to make tax more straightforward. This includes improvements to myIR, student loans, KiwiSaver and more.
- From 3pm Thursday 9 April to 8am Thursday 16 April, myIR secure online services will be unavailable and our offices and phone lines will be closed.
During this time, you can still pay your bill through your bank as you normally would and access the Inland Revenue website.
Please note: If you have draft returns or draft secure mail in myIR, these will be deleted. Be sure to complete these before 3pm on Thursday 9 April so you don’t lose them.
Weekly Working for Families payments: If you receive weekly Working for Families payments and are expecting a payment on either Tuesday 14 April or Wednesday 15 April, you will receive your payment early, on Thursday 9 April or Friday 10 April.
Your payments will continue as normal from Tuesday 21 April or Wednesday 22 April.
