Income tax Dates

  • MAR 31
    Final date for ratio option provisional tax applications.
  • APR 7
    End-of-year income tax and Working for Families bills are due if you have an extension of time to file your income tax return.
  • MAY 7
    Provisional tax payments are due if you have a March balance date and use the standard, estimation or ratio options.

Some people or organisations may have a non-resident withholding tax (NRWT) exemption on their non-resident passive income (NRPI) from New Zealand.

Do not deduct NRWT from someone who gives you a copy of the letter we've given them showing they're exempt.

We give exemptions when:

  • income is exempt from tax, including NRWT, under New Zealand tax law
  • income is exempt from tax because of any other New Zealand legislation
  • double tax agreements allow for an exemption from tax on certain types of income.
