NZ in tax swap info deal with United States 14 May 2015

New Zealand has entered into an agreement with the United States for information sharing in response to a US Act called the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA).

Our financial institutions have to provide information about US citizens to the US Government. Citizens of the US are subject to tax on their worldwide income, even if they live in New Zealand. If you're a US citizen, be sure to tell the IRS about any income you have derived in New Zealand.

It works both ways. The New Zealand Government will receive similar information about New Zealand residents who have accounts in the US.
