February tax payment reminder

February tax payment reminder

Inland Revenue is reminding customers that end-of-year tax payments are due 7 February 2014 unless they have an extension of time through a tax agent.

“We encourage our customers making tax payments to plan ahead so that they are aware of important dates and pay the correct amount on time,” Group Manager Customer Services Eleanor Young said.

Payment may be required for Income Tax, Working for Families Tax Credits or Student Loans for the 2013 tax year.

“To help our customers pay on time and avoid penalties and interest, Inland Revenue sends reminder letters and text messages to many people with a bill to pay,” Ms Young said.

“We are also encouraging our customers to visit our dedicated page on our website for information and they can also make payments through this page.

“If making a payment online isn’t possible we encourage people to pay through internet banking which is quick and easy or by posting a payment slip and cheque to us by February 7.”

Information is available on the Inland Revenue website at http://www.ird.govt.nz/news-updates/campaign-7-february.html

Ms Young said that Inland Revenue continues to make it easier for people to meet their tax obligations and to provide certainty for both businesses and employers who are encouraged to visit the website for any information they require.
