About this service

This service allows you to request a personal tax summary.

When to use this service

If you request a personal tax summary and it works out to be tax to pay, you will have to pay that tax.

You can find out whether you'll automatically be sent a personal tax summary or whether you must request one.

Note: If the payment date has passed you will also be required to pay late payment penalties and interest charges.

If you don't need to request a personal tax summary, you can check whether you've paid the correct amount of tax by using our Work out my income tax filing options calculator. If this works out to be a refund, you'll need to request a personal tax summary to get your refund.

Note: You can request a PTS for any of the last five tax years but not earlier. For example, from 1 April 2015 you will no longer be able to request a PTS for the year ending 31 March 2010.

What you will need
  • your IRD number - if you don't have your IRD number, call us on 0800 377 774
  • any interest, dividend or taxable Māori authority distribution details
  • details of any expenses you can claim.
After you finish


If you request a personal tax summary for any year from 2011 to 2014 it should arrive in 5 to 10 working days (in most cases). If you have not received your personal tax summary within six weeks please contact us on 0800 377 774.


Your personal tax summary will show if you have a refund, have tax to pay or if you've paid the correct amount of tax.

If you request your 2015  personal tax summary before 8 June 2015 you will receive it by the end of July.

If you request your 2015 personal tax summary after 8 June 2015 it should arrive within 45 working days.
