Independent Earner Tax Credit – what is it and how do I get it?

What is Independent Earner Tax Credit?

This is a tax credit available to you if you earn between $24,000 and $48,000 per annum and are not claiming a Working for Families Tax Credit.  It is a tax credit of $520 so if you’ve paid more than this in tax, you can receive this back as a tax refund.

How do I get it?

If you’re a Beany client, you don’t have to do anything as we claim it for you whilst we’re doing your tax returns.

If you’re not a Beany client, then you can file a return online at the IRD and claim it, or become a client.

Call us on 0800 755 333 or contact for more information on this or any other tax query.
