Gather your information

You will need:

  • information about your income
  • your New Zealand Superannuation or Veteran's Pension number (if applicable).

Log in to myIR

Submit a tailored tax code application

Go to your income tax account. You'll find the tailored tax code application under 'I want to'.

Fill in the form and submit it to us.

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.

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.

My responsibilities

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.

You can also complete a Tailored tax code or tailored tax rate application (IR23BS) form and send this to us.
