"My client has just received a letter from the ATO, 'Helping you meet your business activity statement lodgment obligations', the letter is dated 13 February 2012. I make the following observations:
- The letter is sent to my client's private address NOT the address for service of notices;
- The BAS is sent to the address for service of notices;
- Of course, the client contacts us and utilises our time over a "nothing" letter;
- The BAS was lodged by us electronically on 31 January 2012.
Yet another example of a waste of time and resources by the Tax Office!!!!
Pleeeeeeeeease Tax Office, let us do our work and not get side tracked by you wasting our time, our client's time and taxpayer dollars when it is completely and utterly unnecessary.
Frustrated and aggravated member, I passed annoyed sometime ago."
