I'm horrified by the ATO’s response (TaxVine 44, 15 November) to the issues regarding removal of access to information relevant to deceased taxpayers.
"The limitation on access to the tax information of deceased persons through Online services for agents is due to legal requirements…".
Please could TTI ask the ATO to identify exactly what relevant legislations governing deceased estates (ie state laws) have recently changed, OR has ATO been operating outside those old laws for decades?
The ATO response above looks like just another lame excuse for a bad situation, and our confidence in the ATO continues to decline.
