Te whakahaere tāke mā tētahi tangata kua mate Managing tax for someone who dies

Back

When someone dies there are often tax and other financial matters you need to take care of. For example, you may need to file a final income tax return or make child support payments.

Letting us know someone has died makes sure:

  • we pay any tax refund due to the person who died to their estate
  • there will be no more penalties on tax owing
  • any child support owed is paid, or any child support due is paid to their estate
  • we know about any changes to a Working for Families situation
  • we take care of any student loans
  • we transfer any KiwiSaver funds we hold to their estate.
