Reducing red tape - reforms to the Australian Taxation Office

In the 2015–16 Budget, the Government announced it will provide funding over four years to deliver an improved experience for clients in their dealings with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).

Red tape will be reduced and future administrative savings delivered through investment in three foundational initiatives: a digital by default service for provision of information and making payments, improvements to data and analytics infrastructure and enhancing streamlined income tax returns through the myTax system for taxpayers with more complex tax affairs.

The package of service improvements supports the Government's commitment to reduce red tape and forms part of the Government's digital transformation agenda.

This measure delivers on the Government's election commitment.
