Guided help articles are meant to help you find your way with most tax situations, but they do not replace tax laws in New Zealand. Depending on your situation, you may want to consult a tax professional.

Am I eligible for the independent earner tax credit?

The independent earner tax credit helps New Zealand tax residents who usually earn between $24,000 and $48,000 in a tax year. The most you can receive is $520 per year.

Depending on your sources of income, you'll either get this tax credit by giving your employer the right tax code or filing your tax return.
