  • Reliability

    An independent expert panel has assessed the ATO estimate of the tobacco tax gap. This is described in Principles and approaches to measuring gaps.

    Based on advice from the independent expert panel, the reliability rating for the tobacco tax gap estimate is medium.

    As with all gap estimates, the tobacco tax gap estimate remains sensitive to assumptions made. We will be continuing to monitor and test the overall approach as we improve it in future releases.
