The Inland Revenue Department has launched a mobile website to allow people to manage their tax from their smartphones.
The app will come in handy for those who are self-employed, as they will be able to check balances and payment dates online.
Revenue Minister Peter Dunne said student loan borrowers would also see benefits.
"You can look up your balance wherever you are to help manage your loan, or you can use it for simple things like payment reminders or changing your contact or bank account details," he said.
Users can also "view their current year tax deductions from their salary or wages, and those with Working for Families tax credits or child support arrangements can view their entitlements", said a Government press release.
"“The app is a quick and easy way to deal with some of those common interactions Inland Revenue has with customers, but when it comes to matters like filing a return they will still need to use the usual online services," Dunne said.
If the media can't tell the difference between a website and an App, what hope is there for us old men!
