Media expectations

We will do all we 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 our employees from commenting on or providing information about taxpayers.

Media releases and speeches can be found in our media centre.

The ATO acknowledges the importance of public comment in promoting willing participation in the Australian tax and super systems. Media coverage of tax and super-related issues can help or hinder our efforts to contribute to the economic and social wellbeing of all Australians by fostering willing participation. We have developed these media expectations to outline how we will engage with the media.
