Parliamentary committees

Each year, the Commissioner of Taxation appears before the Joint Committee of Public Accounts and Audit to answer questions about our administration of the tax and superannuation systems.

The Committee released Report 434 in November 2012 containing seven recommendations across a range of topics. We have implemented all recommendations except one where implementation is ongoing.

We appeared with Treasury before three Senate Estimate hearings. From these hearings we received and responded to 502 questions on notice. We also appeared before 14 other parliamentary committees, including the:

  • Senate Economics Legislation Committee inquiry into the Tax Laws Amendment (Countering Tax Avoidance and Multinational Profit Shifting) Bill 2013
  • Senate Economics References Committee inquiry into the development and operation of the Minerals Resource Rent Tax
  • Parliamentary Joint Committee on Corporations and Financial Services inquiry into Family Business in Australia.
