03 Sep 10 ATO Briefing Tax Time 2010Angie Ananda FTIA and Deepti Paton ATIA attended the ATO Briefing for Tax Time 2010 on Thursday, 2 September 2010.
The ATP has advised that Tax Time 2010 is continuing with no major congestion reported. Some of the changes to the Notice of Assessment (NOA's) recommended by tax agents are scheduled to occur next weekend which will make NOA's easier to read:
• Removal of boxes and shading
• Adding the year to the title; and
• Insert a client identifier on page 3.
An update on processing figures will be released tomorrow on the ATO website.
We note that where members have experienced delays we have been able to successfully liaise with the ATO to resolve the issue. Therefore if you are experiencing delays and are willing to provide specific details please email us at Tax Policy.
