All Māori authorities must complete and file a credit account return at the end of each tax year.

If you file online through myIR, this will be included as part of your IR8 income tax return.

If you file paper returns, you can include it as part of your IR8 income tax return, or you can file a separate Māori authority credit account return (IR8J).

If you want to do this as part of your income tax return, just use the IR8 form.
If you want to do it separately, use the IR8J form as well, following the process below.
