The vast majority of people and businesses in Aotearoa New Zealand have a great attitude towards paying tax. The tax and social policy system relies on high levels of trust and people’s willingness to pay voluntarily - we work hard to keep ensuring people believe that:
- When I pay my tax I'm doing a good thing (and that's what people like me do)
- When I'm trying to do the right thing, Te Tari Taake Inland Revenue will help me
- When someone else is trying to do the wrong thing, Te Tari Taake Inland Revenue will find them.
