You're mad if you haven't done your 2015 taxes.
By now you should have well and truly done your 31 March 2015 financial statements and tax returns and filed them at IRD.If you're paying taxes then you've already missed 28 August and 15 January provisional tax dates, so you're probably running interest and penalties. That's not a good space to be in. And if you don't have an accountant and aren't on a tax agency list then your tax return is due 07 February 2016!
So, what's the solution?
Best you make a move today to ensure you meet your tax filing commitments.
Even if you haven't got the money to pay your taxes you must still file. At least then, we can get you into a payment arrangement with IRD. It's very important.
