Why we look at property management data

Last updated 20 May 2021

The property management data-matching program will allow us to identify and address a number of taxation risks, including:

  • income tax – confirming correct reporting of rental income, rental related income, rental expenses and associated deductions
  • capital gains tax (CGT) – getting capital gains right when selling properties used to generate income
