16 May 13 Establishment of a Tax System Advisory Board
The best kept secret of the 2013-14 Budget is the announcement that the Government will establish a Tax System Advisory Board within the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) to advise the Commissioner of Taxation and the ATO Executive Committee on the strategic direction, culture, organisation, management, compliance planning, staff profile and information technology plans at the ATO.
The cost of this measure will be met from within the existing resources of the ATO.
