Block Extension Scheme for Tax Representatives
On 27 March 2017, the Commissioner of Inland Revenue issued a Circular Letter to advise tax representatives of details on the Block Extension Scheme for lodgement of 2016/17 tax returns.

Tax representatives are recommended to use this electronic lodgement facility.
