“We are excited to bring you a newly released page on our Inland Revenue website for Māori. With improved access to information and a direct link to our Kaitakawaenga Māori services, this page is a one-stop-shop for Māori to manage their tax online.
We’ve also provided more clarity on koha, taxable and non-taxable payments, and Māori authority distributions. New resources are also available, including our webinars and pānui on relevant tax issues impacting Māori. Visit our new page here: U
Inland Revenue’s direction is for customers to contact us through our phone or digital channels. While the use of digital channels can be seen as more impersonal and challenging, many customers including Māori are comfortable using digital services.
We also understand especially for pākeke and kaumātua, kanohi ki te kanohi is the best way to build trust. Therefore we encourage feedback on this section of Inland Revenue’s website & content by using the feedback option on the webpage.
I hope we can collaborate together and use this opportunity as a starting point for ongoing engagement, regarding how we support Māori on a regular basis.
