In 1993 the Federal Parliament's Joint Committee of Public Accounts (JCPA) - in Report 326 - a Report on the Administration of Tax Law and the Operations of the Australian Tax Office - recommended that the tax law be simplified. In December 1993, the then Treasurer announced the establishment of TLIP.
TLIP's role was to restructure, renumber and rewrite, in plain language Australia's income tax law.
In this convention paper the author reviews this proces and the outcomes of TLIP and it's benefits and problems.
