Te whakatika i ngā hapa i taku puka tāke takitahi Fixing mistakes in my individual tax return


If you realise you've made mistakes in your individual tax return after you've filed, you can fix these:

  • in myIR
  • in your next return
  • by asking us to do it.

Fixing mistakes in your next return

You can only fix mistakes in your next return if:

  • the total tax discrepancy in the assessment caused by the mistake is $1,000 or less
  • doing this will not delay the payment of tax, when the total discrepancy is equal to or less than both:
  • $10,000 of your annual gross income and
  • 2% of your annual gross income.
