21 Nov 08 Assistant Treasurer announces Tax Issues Entry System (TIES)In a press release issued on 20 November 2008, the Assistant Treasurer, Chris Bowen, announced the launch of the Tax Issues Entry System (TIES).
“TIES is a single entry point for tax professionals and the community to raise minor policy and administrative issues relating to the care and maintenance of the tax and superannuation systems,” Mr Bowen said. “Care and maintenance issues involve ensuring the existing tax and superannuation laws operate in the way they were intended - for example, by correcting technical or drafting defects, removing anomalies and addressing unintended outcomes. The Government is committed to ensuring that issues of this kind are routinely dealt with. I encourage tax professionals and members of the community to use TIES.”
TIES is an Australian Government initiative jointly managed by the ATO and the Department of the Treasury.
