Delays to response times: It's taking longer than usual to answer calls and myIR messages, including for unclaimed money. You may be able to use self-service options in myIR. You can also find information on our website by typing in what you want to do in the search bar. Thank you for your understanding. Log in to myIR

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.

If you already have an IRD number but cannot find it, we can help you find it.

New arrivals to New Zealand - having trouble verifying your identity

If you've tried to get an IRD number as a 'new arrival' but it did not work, you'll need to apply for one in a different way. Depending on your situation, you'll need to apply either as:

  • 'living in New Zealand and not a new arrival'
  • 'living overseas'.
