13 May 11 Court decides ATO can rely on stolen information
MEMBER 76 writes:
"Why is it that the ATO will not accept that Tax Agents have the 28 day extension to lodge BAS (via ELS), when discussing client's payment plans. I have been advising the clients that if the ATO wish to be like this, the client should wait until I've lodged the BAS (after 28 days) and then contact the ATO to arrange a payment arrangement. It just means that the ATO will wait another 28 days. How silly is that from an ATO perspective?
Also, I would like to know if there is a general tax lodgment extension from 15 May to 6 June 2011, as there has been in other years?"
