    External scrutineers

    We are open and accountable in our administration of the tax system and are subject to review by external scrutineers, including:

    • parliamentary committees
    • the Inspector-General of Taxation
    • the Board of Taxation
    • the Commonwealth Ombudsman
    • the Australian National Audit Office.

    We work closely with Treasury in developing new tax policy and legislation. We may refer matters to Treasury if the tax law is not consistent with policy, or produces unintended consequences or significant compliance costs.

    We encourage you to contribute to enquiries by our external reviewers as you consider appropriate.
