The Australian Financial Review quoted The Tax Institute today: "Self-assessment faces ATO audit". The article relates to the Inspector-General of Taxation's review into the self-assessment system. The Tax Institute says that the system has potential benefits, but the current administration of this system has not resulted in the best balance of responsibilities between taxpayers and the ATO. Our members have ongoing concerns in relation to the timeliness and accessibility of advice provided by the ATO.
