On Friday 14 September 2012, Senior Tax Counsel Robert Jeremenko CTA and Tax Counsel Stephanie Caredes CTA attended a hearing held by the Joint Committee of Public Accounts and Audit with the Commissioner of Taxation. The Tax Institute was one of a handful of select bodies invited to provide evidence at the hearing in relation to the ATO’s performance during the 12 months preceding the hearing. The Tax Institute raised issues of key concern to our Members in respect of dealings with the ATO as well as acknowledged areas of improvement by the ATO with respect to Members’ concerns which were addressed by the ATO in the preceding 12 months.
