For farmers, fishers and growers who have been affected by the following events:

  • The Southland/Otago floods of late 2019.
  • Mycoplasma bovis (unexpected taxable income from the sale of culled stock not replaced in the same year). 
  • Drought in the entire North Island, Tasman, Marlborough, Kaikoura, North Canterbury and the Chatham Islands.

The Commissioner has decided to extend the date in which to make a deposit to the income equalisation account for the 2019 income year to 30 June 2020.

If you have been affected by the above events, missed payment or filing dates or are struggling to deal with your tax affairs, please contact us sooner rather than later so we can help. The best way to do this is through your tax agent or call us on 0800 473 566.
