Changes to the myIR login screen are coming You will not be able to use myIR between 1pm Saturday 8 October and 8am Monday 10 October. This is so we can update our external authentication system. From Monday 10 October the myIR login page will have a new look and feel, but the login process will not change.

You can let someone act on your behalf for your Inland Revenue responsibilities. Your nominated person can:

  • contact us and act for you
  • complete and sign your tax returns and other forms
  • receive the information we send to you.

Even though a nominated person can act for you, they cannot use your myIR login.

Who can be a nominated person

A nominated person can be an individual or a non-individual. Entities that can be nominated include:

  • companies
  • incorporated societies
  • incorporated charitable trusts
  • partnerships.

Power of Attorney

If you have been given authority to handle another person’s financial affairs (which would include the other person’s tax affairs) by being granted a power of attorney, you will need to provide IR with a certified copy of the original power of attorney document before you can deal with the other person’s tax affairs.

A certified copy is a photocopy of the original document that has been stamped/endorsed by a solicitor who has confirmed that the copy is a true copy of the original document.

Ways you can provide IR with a certified power of attorney document:

  1. Electronic scanned copy sent through myIR; or
  2. Provided over the counter at one of our offices; or
  3. Posted to the following address:
    PO Box 39010
    Wellington Mail Centre
    Wellington 5045
