If you’re unable to pay your taxes on time due to the impact of COVD-19, we understand, you don’t need to contact us right now.
Get in touch with us when you can, and we’ll remit any penalties and interest.
It would help if you continue to file however, as the information is used to make correct payments to people, and to help the Government continue to respond to what is happening in the economy.
There are other ways you can pay your tax, through internet banking or using myIR. You can make credit card or debit card payments or set up direct debit payments through your myIR account.
If you'd like to break down your payments, you can set up an instalment arrangement in myIR.
You can also apply for a write-off due to serious hardship if you know you won't be able to pay the full amount. If we grant relief from payment due to hardship and you have losses to carry forward, these losses will be reduced in proportion to the amount written off.
Alternatively, you can send us a disclosure of financial position form - IR590 or call us on our Adverse Events line at 0800 473 566.
