We presume you are trying to meet your obligations unless your actions give us reason to think otherwise. We provide help through our advice, publications and visits.
However, we have a responsibility to the community to ensure everyone complies with the laws we administer. For this reason, we sometimes check the accuracy of the information you give us. We do this by selecting some tax returns, activity statements and other documents for checking.
If we check your affairs it does not mean we think you are dishonest. Even if we find a discrepancy, we accept that mistakes can be made. If the law allows us to, we take this into account when we consider any penalties.
