What is a KiwiSaver Member Tax Credit (MTC)?
The government will contribute 50 cents for every dollar of member contributions to your KiwiSaver account up to a maximum of $521.43 per year for KiwiSaver members over 18 years of age.
The KiwiSaver financial year runs from 1 July to 30 June. Contributions must be made within this time period to be considered for the annual Member Tax Credit. In July, the administrator of the Milford KiwiSaver Plan will provide the IRD with investors’ KiwiSaver contribution amounts for investors’ Member Tax Credits. The IRD will normally pay Member Tax Credits to investors’ KiwiSaver accounts directly in July.
