"This isn't a rant about the ATO, its Portal or more. It's one about the freedom to promote one's specialisation as a 'tax specialist' without the need to be a registered tax agent or lawyer.
At the site under For Consumers/Find a Planner if you tick 'Tax' under 'Area of Specialisation', you will find a treasure trove of 'tax specialists'.
Why is it that these people have carte blanche to say whatever they wish?"
