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.
