27 Jan 11 Firmer action approach to debt collection

The ATO says that it is using firmer action to collect debt. It takes firmer action when:

  • taxpayers choose not to work with the ATO to address their tax debt or repeatedly default on payment arrangements
  • the debt is escalating with no evidence the taxpayer can meet ongoing tax obligations
  • an audit has detected deliberate avoidance and continuing payment avoidance
  • businesses engage in "phoenix activity to avoid financial obligations.
