Legislation is often interpreted in different ways by the courts. So you may have a point in how the IRD have treated your issue. Usually you need to lodge a Notice of Proposed Adjustment and then ultimately go to the Taxation Review Authority to decide issues like this

Customer
Where do I go to lodge that? And can my request be denied? Lodging comes with a fee?
Customer
No thank you in calling I just paid 8 bucks to use this service and calling will cost an additional 89 bucks I am being a cheap skate

Inland Revenue have a page on how to do this, and where to send it

https://www.classic.ird.govt.nz/forms-guides/title/forms-n/ir770-form-prpsd-adjust-return.html

I suggest you look at the page and ask any questions arising. Dont worry about the phone call

Customer
Thank you for your help one more question how does a layman like myself get passed people saying your not a lawyer when trying to actively use my legal rights just wondering? Do you believe only lawyers can use tools of legislation?

Anyone can use legislation and interpret this for their cases. There is nothing wrong with this, Of course lawyers sometimes know how the legislation works and what it means, but that does not stop you forming your own views on things

Customer
