The office of the Inspector-General of Taxation has been in operation for over 12 years, having been created by way of enabling legislation in 2002 in response to taxpayer concerns about the administration of the tax system. The role as established was to investigate issues relating to the tax administration system and to make recommendations for improving it for the benefit of all Australians. The office has evolved since its establishment. An important recent change is the transfer of the individual taxation complaints facilitation and investigation function to the Inspector-General, a function previously managed by the Commonwealth Ombudsman.
This article discusses that change, and goes on to survey the Inspector-General's work program and review reports, past, present and future. In particular, the article discusses the recent management of tax disputes report, and the review into the ATO's administration of valuation matters report.
