Paying your tax by Cash or Eftpos at Westpac – a barcode is needed
From 1 October, Westpac will only accept tax payments with a barcode. If you are planning to make payments at a Westpac branch or Smart ATM in future, you will need to have a barcode. This helps to ensure the payment goes to the right place.
Where to find a barcode
Barcodes are usually printed on Inland Revenue returns, statements or letters.
Otherwise, a barcode can be generated on the Inland Revenue website, which can be printed, or shown on a mobile device.
To generate a barcode go to ird.govt.nz/barcode
