21 Jul 11 Chair says "Use a registered agent this tax time"
In a media release issued on 20 July 2011, the Chair of the Tax Practitioners Board, Dale Boucher, urged taxpayers who are using a tax agent to prepare and lodge their tax return to make sure their agent is registered.
“Anyone who uses an agent to prepare and lodge their tax return should ensure the agent is registered with the TPB. This way they can be confident they are getting professional advice. This should help to avoid any mistakes or penalties this tax time,” Mr Boucher said.
