"Last week's TAXVINE included a long list of upcoming consultations and details of submissions being prepared. I presume that many of these consultations and submissions involve our employed Tax Counsel. As I have just paid my membership of the Taxation Institute and ICAA and a few other organizations, I realize that through my memberships we accountants are paying for the good governance of our country and for correcting errors that our paid public servants are making in drafting legislation. Not only do tax agents assist the ATO in its administration but we are now also responsible for getting the laws correct as well. We certainly are a nice bunch of people."
