History

Inland Revenue started out as the Land Tax Department in 1878. The department was renamed the Land and Income Tax Department in 1892 with the central office set up in Wellington.

It wasn't until 1952, when the organisation joined with the Stamp Duties Department, that the organisation came to be known as the Inland Revenue Department, or IRD.
