Division 355 - Confidentiality of taxpayer information  

Subdivision 355-B - Disclosure of protected information by taxation officers  

Operative provisions

SECTION 355-60   LIMITS ON DISCLOSURE TO MINISTERS  

355-60(1)  
Sections 355-45 and 355-55 are the only exceptions to the prohibition in section 355-25 on which an entity who has acquired *protected information as a *taxation officer can rely in making a record of the information for, or disclosing the information to, a Minister, whether or not provided to a Minister in the course of, or for the purposes of or incidental to, the transacting of the business of a House of the Parliament or of a committee of one or both Houses of the Parliament.

Note:

Disclosures that are not prohibited by section 355-25 are not affected by this subsection. For example, a taxation officer may disclose information to a Minister if the Minister is the entity to whom the information relates, or is an entity covered by subsection 355-25(2) in relation to the information.

355-60(2)  
Subsection (1) has effect despite section 16 of the Parliamentary Privileges Act 1987 , and that section does not operate to the extent that it would otherwise apply to a disclosure of *protected information by a *taxation officer to a Minister.

Note:

This subsection does not limit the operation of section 16 of the Parliamentary Privileges Act 1987 in any other respect. That section continues to operate, for example, to enable taxation officers to disclose protected information to a committee of one or both Houses of the Parliament.
