Secure and private information

When we administer the tax laws we collect information about you, either from you directly or from third parties. We respect your privacy and keep your information confidential. In some circumstances, the law allows us to disclose your information to others for specific purposes.

If you think that your privacy or the confidentiality of your tax information has been breached because of our actions, you should talk to us as soon as possible. If you have already been dealing with a tax officer, your first step should be to try to resolve the issue with them. If you are not satisfied, talk to the tax officer's manager.

If you are not satisfied with the way we have handled your complaint, the Privacy Commissioner may be able to help you.
