Credit and debit card payment for Inland Revenue accounts

About this service

This service allows you to pay any of your Inland Revenue accounts by credit or debit card.

When to use this service

Using a credit or debit card is one way to make payments including child support and student loan repayments. From July 2010 you can use your Visa or MasterCard credit or debit card to make all online payments to us. We will apply a convenience fee for this service, except for payments made from overseas for:

  • student loans, and
  • liable parent child support payments.

The online card payment service is provided by our bank, Westpac New Zealand Limited. They charge a convenience fee of 1.42% per transaction for providing this service. Inland Revenue does not receive any part of this fee. This fee appears as a separate transaction on your card/account statement and is referred to as "Westpac Convenience Fee".

What you will need
  • Your IRD number - if you don't have your IRD number phone us on:
    • 0800 227 774
    • 0800 377 778 (student loan borrowers), or
    • 0800 221 221 (child support customers).
  • Your credit or debit card details.
After you finish

Your payment will be dated on the date the payment was made through the card service.
