Abstract:
The recent debate on the appointment of an Inspector-General for taxation has placed the spotlight on the processes within the Australian taxation system for resolving disputes, reviewing legislation and streamlining administration.

This presentation includes a summary of grass roots concerns and a robust analysis of:
- the distinctive roles of the Ombudsman, an Inspector-General and the ATO
- particular problems versus general problems
- alternatives to conventional objection and appeal procedures.
