When will I receive my tax receipt from Interserve?
You will receive your tax receipt for Year Ending March 31, by May 7 of that same year. If you would prefer to have Interserve email it to you, please let us know, otherwise we will mail it to your postal address. Contact Interserve on firstname.lastname@example.org

Why should I claim a credit (formerly rebate)?
If you do not claim a credit the money remains with the government. However, if you do claim your credit, you can make your initial donation work again by donating it back to Interserve NZ. We have a growing number of people who do this each year, and on behalf of the missions and projects, we thank you for your support.
How do I donate my credit (formerly rebate) to Interserve?
To donate your credit (or part of your credit) to Interserve, follow the simple steps below:
Complete the IRD Tax Credit Form IR 526. For facts on tax credits, see IR 525.
Enter Interserve's IRD number 10-019-613 in Section 7 and the amount you want to transfer in Section 8 on your Inland Revenue Dept Rebate Claim Form.
Attach your Interserve tax receipt (and any other relevant tax receipts) to your IR 526 and post to IRD.
Finally, please contact us and let us know where you wish the donation to be directed towards. If your donation is eligible for tax credits, it will be accounted for in your next annual receipt.

You don’t need Interserve to prepare separate receipts if you are sharing a receipt between yourself and your partner – you only need to complete another credit claim form and attach a note explaining that you are sharing receipts and give their name and IRD number.
