"This must be the quote of the week in today's The Age (8 October 2010):
'Tony Anamourlis, a tax lecturer at La Trobe University, said the ATO profiled taxpayers by monitoring social networking sites such as Facebook and using data gleaned from tax havens under information-sharing agreements.
"The ATO is now a very slick, sophisticated organisation with real-time computing, so that at the blink of an eye it can pull up a full profile on any taxpayer anywhere, at any time it chooses to do so," he said.'
Yet, we can't tell you why assessments are issued, why the Portal just doesn't work, etc, etc, etc.
Hey ATO - how about covering the basics first??!!"
