About us

Inland Revenue's Policy and Strategy group (previously Policy Advice Division), jointly with the Treasury, advises the New Zealand Government on all aspects of tax law and reform and on social policy measures that interact with the tax system.

We also:

  • draft tax legislation;
  • forecast tax revenues; and
  • negotiate, interpret and maintain New Zealand's network of double tax agreements with other countries.
