25 Mar 11 Engagement with Treasury and the Tax Commissioner
The Tax Institute recently presented to senior Treasury officers in Canberra. We discussed the Tax Institute’s history, operations, member concerns and current policy priorities. This was an excellent opportunity to speak with a significantly sized group of officials and is the continuation of the regular engagement that we have with the Treasury.
The Tax Institute also met with the Tax Commissioner, Michael D’Ascenzo AO, to discuss numerous matters including strategic tax industry issues and the National Tax Liaison Group, as well as member feedback on various issues in the tax system. This was a very constructive meeting that will ensure continued direct interaction with the Tax Office senior leadership.
