Member feedback on Advocacy Tracker
One of our members has provided feedback on the inclusion of the new Advocacy Tracker in TaxVine which sets out some of the key issues that The Tax Institute’s Tax Policy and Advocacy Team (TPA) is advocating for on your behalf. It will be updated each week and includes additional hyperlinked resources.
The member provided the following feedback:
I am a very small cog in the wheel of tax so The Tax Institute has been an integral tool for my practice.
Thank you for the new format of TaxVine and, importantly for me, which now includes an up-to-date Advocacy section with an easy link to Advocacy matters that The Tax Institute is working on. I also thank The Tax Institute for kindly noting my concerns about the loss of Member Feedback and for taking the time to discuss the issue with me.
Response by Robyn Jacobson CTA, Senior Advocate
Thanks to the member for their feedback. We continue to work with a number of members on the development of the Activity Tracker and the refinement of our Community Hub,which we plan to formally launch in April. We understand it is important for our members to feel connected with each other, to be able to express their concerns and seek assistance from The Tax Institute’s TPA team. It is also valuable for members to understand what is currently in our sights as we progress advocacy matters on behalf of our members.
We encourage member feedback, either through TaxVine feedback, or via our Tax Policy email, and we value the opportunity to connect with you one-on-one and escalate any relevant issues to the respective government agencies.
