Freedom of information requests
Individuals and businesses can also request copies of Tax Office documents under the FOI laws. The FOI laws also enable taxpayers to request a correction of information held if it is incomplete, incorrect, out of date or misleading.
For documents which contain only your personal information, there is no charge. There may be charges for accessing other types of documents.
