IR3 Using this guide

Did you know you can also file your return online? Go to and login to myIR secure online services.

The form will prepopulate with your personal details and earnings information.

Before you start filling in the return make sure you have:

  • any interest or dividend statements

  • any taxable Maori authority distribution statements

  • any other income details, such as overseas, rental property, farming or business income

  • your 2020 Working for Families Tax Credits (WfFTC) letter, if you applied for WfFTC from Inland Revenue.

The questions in this guide are in the same order as the questions on the return.

Don’t use anyone else’s preprinted return because it’s precoded with their own IRD number.
