Data is updated annually. As the return filing process for 2016 is still in progress, the latest published revenue, debt and compliance statistics are for the 2015 fiscal year. The customer statistics are available for the 2016 tax year.
The most recently updated data was released in early January 2017.
Notes relevant to all tables and graphs
- Tax statistics include only data collected by Inland Revenue.
- Statistics are chosen to meet Official Statistics System criteria and to allow robust analysis.
- The data does not duplicate statistics available separately from other sources such as Statistics New Zealand or The Treasury.
- Statistics are presented as both tables and graphs and cover the period from 2001 onwards. You can download each graph and table. For the years prior to 2006 please go to our Archived statistics
- We provide links to definitions so each table or graph can be understood and the statistics used effectively.
- All numbers in the tables are rounded, which means the totals are not always consistent with the sums across the corresponding categories.
- We provide revenue and debt statistics for each fiscal year ending 30 June. All other data is presented at or for the tax year ending, 31 March.
- All statistics are correct at 15 September of the year of publishing. Please note that some further changes in data are possible because of return filing processes.
