7 April 2017 Tax Due Reminders

February 21, 2017

Inland Revenue have been improving the way they collect overdue debt for some time now. They have also been working to understand why people go into debt and have developed some initiatives to increase on time payment.

IRD continue to see high numbers of people who miss the 7 April due date and have received feedback that customers are not always aware of their 7 April payment obligations. IRD have successfully increased the compliance of customers with payments due on 7 February by sending reminders before this due date. So, they will use the same approach to support customers with payments due 7 April 2017.

In 2017 IRD plan to send reminder letters directly to customers who have filed their 2016 Return and have a liability to pay by 7 April 2017. They won’t include any customers who are owed a refund, or have paid their liability. They will also be issuing a text message reminder to those customers they don’t send a letter to. These will be issued 16 and 17 March.
