  • National Tax Liaison Group

    The National Tax Liaison Group is one of the Stewardship groups operated by the ATO as a means of improving the client experience and administration of Australia’s taxation and superannuation system.

    The group provides an opportunity for strategic discussion to develop and improve the administration and operation of the taxation and superannuation system into the future.

    The group will discuss systemic or strategic matters regarding:

    • the administration of tax policy, implementation of new measures and associated law design process
    • interpretation or application of the law and its evolution or development
    • administration of the taxation and superannuation laws and compliance with those laws
    • ATO operations including activities that support the delivery of ATO services.

    The ATO consultation protocol underpins our consultation framework arrangements.


    The secretariat of the National Tax Liaison Group can be contacted by email at
