Logging in with RealMe

Inland Revenue allows RealMe as a login option for myIR Secure Online Services. This is optional, you don't have to register for RealMe to use our services. If you already have a myIR userID and password you may continue to use these as normal or switch to RealMe if you prefer.

Having a RealMe login gives you a single username and password that you can use for a variety of government and commercial online services. For more information, go to RealMe

You can reuse a RealMe login that you’ve already created to use another service, there’s no need to create another one. If you don’t already have a RealMe login you can create one by clicking Login with RealMe and then Create Your RealMe Login.

We do not use RealMe’s Verified Identity or Second Factor Login service so you will not need to have your RealMe ID verified at NZ Post or enter your six digit login code; you only need your RealMe username and password.
