22 Jan 07 IGOT announces review into objections to ATO decisionsIn a press release issued on 18 January 2007, the Inspector-General of Taxation, David Vos, announced the release of the Terms of Reference and Consultation Plan for his review into objections to ATO decisions.
Mr Vos said “The recent review into the ATO’s management of litigation found that the ATO concedes or settles a significant number of disputed tax decisions after the objection process but before cases are heard in the tribunal or courts. This review will examine the underlying causes and the management of objections to ATO decisions to see whether the conduct of the ATO or taxpayers or the administrative system itself is creating potentially unnecessary disputes and litigation”.
