Tax Refund Service

The tax refund service we provide is fast and efficient. We aim to get you the biggest possible IRD tax refund in the shortest possible time. Usually we can claim tax refunds for any of the past 5 years, although in some cases we can claim existing tax credits that are up to 8 years overdue.

We specialise in filing tax returns for the following:

  • Wage & Salary Earners
  • Sole Traders & Contractors
  • Rental Property Owners - Sole or Joint Ownership
  • Brightline Test Tax Returns - Claim all the allowable deductions
  • Rideshare Tax Reurns for UBER and OLA drivers

Once you are linked to our agency, the IRD may send you a notification letter advising that we have been appointed as your tax agent and notifying you of an Extension Of Time to file your tax return. When you are linked to our agency, we are able to access your tax and income records along with other information that may impact on your refund assessment directly from the Inland Revenue.

You do not need to reapply with us next year however you will need to advise us if your personal details change or if you receive any income other than from wages or salary. 

We will notify you if you are entitled to a refund by email or txt and we aim to get refunds to our clients within 5 working days of receiving the application, although the IRD do not work to this timeframe.

Please note: Tax Refunds for the most recently completed tax year (year ended 31st March) may not be issued by the IRD until late May at the earliest.

Rental Property Tax Returns

My Tax Back NZ Ltd offers affordable Rental Property Accounting & Tax Return services from the comfort of your home or office. We file more tax returns than any other tax agency.

We offer NZ’s LOWEST FIXED FEE with a full description of services provided. There are no hidden fees, surprises or fish hooks. There is no need to hire an expensive chartered accountant when our team of experienced, IRD registered tax agents can do the same work at lower costs and with a much faster turnaround.

Once you sign up with our agency and notify us of your rental income,  we send you an easy digital form to capture and record your rental property income and expenses.

If you are a sole owner of rental property we provide:

  • Your Individual IR3 return
  • Annual income statement (profit & loss)
  • Tax advice about your rental property
  • Tax reminders and assessments
  • Free phone and email support

If your rental property is jointly owned we provide all of the above PLUS an individual tax return for each owner. ie 3 owners = 3 tax returns.

We will compile your rental property summary and ensure that we’ve used every possible deduction. Then we combine your rental property income (or loss) with your personal incomes (if any) and file IR3 Individual Income Tax returns with Inland Revenue for both/all owners.

Unlike most accounting firms, we won’t charge you for any time involved in answering your questions, or providing additional advice. We’re here to help you maximise rental returns and aim to make the process as easy and pain free as possible for you. When you are a client, we are available via phone or email to answer any all of your questions.

We provide unlimited FREE tax advice and support as it relates to your rental property.

If you’re not sure about things like;

  • Ringfencing of losses,
  • Brightline Tests,
  • Depreciation,
  • Provisional tax
  • Tax deductibility ie. what expenses are claimable.

…….just ask and we can provide a simple, easy to understand explanation of these and many other tax related topics.




Our Customers

Our clients are typically wage and salary earners who have worked during any of the previous 5 years. Our experience suggests that if you have been working and paying tax, then you have a great chance of receiving a New Zealand tax refund. You might be a full time or a part time worker, it makes no real difference since most payroll systems generally over tax employees at some point. If any of the following situations apply to you during any of the past 5 years, your chances of getting a tax refund significantly increase:

  • You have worked more than one job at any one point in time and used a secondary tax code
  • You have earned between $24,000 and $48,000 and don’t receive any Working For Families tax credits
  • You received a bulk payment for holiday pay/bonus/backpay etc
  • You work irregular hours
  • You have changed jobs in any of the past 5 years and received your holiday pay with your final pay from any employer.

We have processed thousands of tax refunds applications for people from all walks of life including high profile sportsmen and TV personalities but typically our clients are regular hard working NZ residents who get paid either wages or a salary and have no other forms of income. Surprisingly, we even manage to recover IRD tax refunds for some beneficiaries….even government departments don’t calculate the correct amount of tax to deduct in every case. Every person’s situation is different and there are many reasons why people get a tax refund but it all boils down to one simple fact….they have paid more tax than they are legally obliged to pay.
