    Media Expectations

    The ATO will do all it can to be open and transparent when responding to media requests.

    From time to time, there will be limits on the information we can provide due to various legal or administration restrictions. The law prevents ATO employees from commenting on or providing information about taxpayers.

    Further information on this is available here.

    Media releases and speeches

    Past media releases and speeches can be found at our media centre.

    There is a search function available.

    Public Relations

    Our Public Relations unit works with industry and professional bodies to help inform the community about their tax and superannuation obligations.
