Before you start
You will need:
- information about your income
- your New Zealand Superannuation or Veteran's Pension number (if applicable).
Submit a tailored tax code application
Go to 'More' in your income tax account. You'll find the tailored tax code application under the 'Manage account' heading.
Fill in the form and submit it to us.
Log in to myIR
What happens next
We'll send you a letter and certificate within 10 working days of receiving your application to let you know your tailored tax rate.
Please note that applications made during February and March may take longer than 10 working days.
You need to tell your payer what your tailored tax rate is. Do this by showing them your certificate.
If you have a tailored tax code for your New Zealand Superannuation or Veteran's Pension we'll let Work and Income know.
You need to reapply for a tailored tax code every tax year you want one.
We’ll contact you through myIR in time for you to reapply.
