    Default Income tax on selling overseas property?

    Sorry the question is not about investment property, but I've seen some discussions of similar questions here, so I thought I could try.
    I inherited this property several years ago, so I didn't buy it neither with intention to sell nor with any other, and sold it because I don't want any property in that country. So I'm unsure how to determine if I'll have to pay any tax on this income in NZ.

    If the property generated income while in your ownership and while you were a NZ tax resident, is probably taxable in NZ as well as the other country. There may be a tax agreement preventing double-taxation.

    But nope. Don't see any way you'd be taxed on the sale in NZ. May be taxes in whatever country the property is in.
