We are also authorised by the Taxation Administration Act 1953 to collect the information requested on the Nomination of a legal representative to act on behalf of an individual or non-individual forms. We need it to enable us to deal with and disclose information to your representative about your taxation affairs on your behalf.

Where authorised by law, we may give this information to other government departments and agencies, including:

  • Services Australia

We also provide taxpayer information to treaty partners overseas under international tax agreements.

Our privacy policy contains important information about your privacy, including information about how you can access and seek correction of information we hold about you, how to make a complaint if you think we have breached the Australian Privacy Principles and how we will deal with any privacy complaints.
