Māori authority distributions will either be taxable or non-taxable but can be made in a variety of ways. If you have received a distribution you may have additional tax obligations.

Types of Māori authority distributions

Your organisation may choose to make distributions to some or all of its members. Any distribution made will be either taxable or non-taxable and accounted for on a Māori authority distribution statement.

Receiving income from a Māori authority

You should receive a distribution statement from any Māori authority that has made a distribution to you. This information will help you when completing your personal income tax return or requesting a personal tax summary.
