IR3A individual income tax return 2017

1 April 2016 to 31 March 2017

This service allows tax agent's to file their clients individual income tax return online. This is the same as completing the Individual tax return 2017 (IR3A) form.

Use this service once you've received your list of client document lodgement numbers (DLNs) in the mail and are ready to file it online with us.

The numbers to the right of each box of the online return correspond to the question numbers on the paper IR3A return. This means you can use the IR3 guide to help explain each step when filing online.

You need:

  • Your client's income details for the 2016-2017 period. This typically includes their summary of earnings, any interest or dividends information, rental income and any overseas income.
  • Your IRD number - if you don't have this call us on 0800 377 774.
  • The DLN for your clients. This is the 14-character number printed in the schedule we sent you. If you don't have this number either call us on 0800 377 774 or download a printable return to complete and return by post.
  • Access to a printer. You must print a copy of your clients return so please ensure your computer is connected to a printer.


Unless you have an extension of time you need to submit your clients IR3A by 7 July 2017.
