Inland Revenue is in the process of making some changes we thought you should know about. It is important you read about these changes as they will help ensure you file returns and make payments on time.
Removal of Invercargill drop-box
Previously, there was a drop-box on the street outside Inland Revenue’s Invercargill office for taxpayers to drop their payments and returns into 24 hours per day, 7 days a week. This was convenient for taxpayers who do not file returns or make payments electronically, and who do not want to rely on the postal system to get things to the Inland Revenue by the due date.
From 31 August 2017, the drop-box has been moved into Inland Revenue’s reception area and will only be available from Monday to Friday between the hours of 10:30am and 4pm. Inland Revenue has advised the change was due to security reasons.
Due to the reduced availability of the drop-box, it is an opportune time for those who manually file returns or make payments to start doing so electronically.
