As long as you make contributions during the year you will automatically get your tax credits. The tax credit year runs from 1 July to 30 June. After 30 June each year WIKS will make a claim to IRD on your behalf for your tax credits. IRD will pay the amount to MKS to be added to your account. As long as you contribute the equivalent of approximately $10 per week you will receive the maximum tax credits.
In your first and last year’s of membership the tax credits will be pro rated for the number of week’s membership in that year.
