Tax refunds in 60secs by app

New Zealand Tax Refund web site

You can now get a tax refund online in about 60 seconds.

That is, if you’re eligible.

This is the latest marketing pitch from tax refund company NZ Tax Refunds, which does the work as a tax agent.

The company is launching a new cellphone application today.

The average refund for wage and salary earners is $464 – “the same price as a new Samsung Galaxy Mini, Nokia Lumia smartphone or entry level tablet device. Or a few tickets on Jetstar, one way ticket to Sydney or a big night out at a restaurant”, the company spins.

NZ Tax Refunds also points out that due to a combination of miscalculated deductions from salaried employees and wage earners, missed exemptions and rebates, using the wrong tax code, change of circumstances and lack of awareness about setting records straight means Inland Revenue is sitting on millions of dollars of unclaimed tax returns.
