  • Information and privacy

    To effectively administer the tax and superannuation systems, the ATO is required to collect, analyse and share information, in accordance with the law, on the financial affairs of taxpayers and other participants in the Australian economy. In this our intention is to be fair and professional, and we adhere to strict standards of confidentiality to ensure your right to privacy is maintained in accordance with the law.

    In being accountable we also facilitate public access to information about how we operate in accordance with freedom of information law and principles and our strategies to foster willing compliance with tax and super obligations. We aim for the greatest possible openness and transparency about how we operate to maintain the community's trust and confidence.
