IGT to take on tax complaint handling function from 1 May
From 1 May 2015, the Inspector-General of Taxation (IGT) will be able to consider and assist taxpayers with their complaints about the ATO.
The integration of the complaint handling function with the IGT’s existing role will provide a single port of call for all taxpayers and tax practitioners for their complaints or broader concerns about the tax system as administered by the ATO.
The IGT will consider all complaints, from the simple to the complex, including those arising during audits, objections and litigation.
Further information regarding the IGT’s new functions and how complaints may be lodged will be available on the IGT’s website at www.igt.gov.au.
