18 Jun 1010 ATO Briefing Tax Time 2010Angie Ananda FTIA attended the ATO Briefing for Tax Time 2010 on Thursday, 17 June 2010. The ATO indicated that everything was still progressing in line with the timetable for Tax Time 2010. At this stage, no issues have been identified by the ATO that would adversely impact Tax Time 2010.
One point to note is that the ATO confirmed that interest information will not be available until mid to late August. The ATO has advised that the reason this information will not be available until then is that the "process is large and complex and requires the extraction of data, transformation of that data into the required format and then loading the data into the pre-fill database in a format for agents and taxpayers use". All other pre-fill information will be available prior to this time.
