Complete Question 15 if you received taxable Maori authority distributions between 1 April 2018 and 31 March 2019. The Maori authority that paid you the distribution will send you a Maori authority distribution statement.
Credits attached to distributions
The Maori authority may attach a credit to the distribution it makes to members. This credit will be classified as a “Maori authority credit” and includes tax the Maori authority has already paid on its profits.

the distribution made to you, including which portion is taxable and which portion isn’t
the Maori authority credit.
Transfer these amounts, not including any non-taxable distribution, to the relevant boxes at Question 15.
