Making payments to us by post
You can make payments to us from New Zealand and overseas.
If you have a statement from us, send us the preprinted payment slip at the bottom of the statement with your payment. Payments must be received by us on or before the due date. You'll need to make your payment by cheque - don't send cash.
Send your payments to us at:
PO Box 39050
Wellington Mail Centre
Lower Hutt 5045
If you're making your payment to us from overseas
The date the payment is received is the date we use when crediting your account.
So your payments go smoothly, make sure you do the following:
- Make your cheque payable to Inland Revenue.
- Cross your cheque "Not transferable".
- Fill in the amount due if the payment slip doesn't have it preprinted.
- Print the words and figures clearly using a blue or black pen.
- Show the cents as "00" if the amount due is a round dollar figure.
- Use any envelope we provide.
