The Inspector-General of Taxation and Taxation Ombudsman (IGTO) has prepared its Corporate Plan which notes our purpose is to:
- Improve the administration of taxation laws for the benefit of the community
- Provide independent advice to the Minister, the Government and Parliament
- Improve accountability and provide assurance to the community through independent investigation and reporting that Australian taxation laws are being administered with integrity – that is, fairly, equitably and transparently, as intended by Parliament and in accordance with community expectations of fairness
- Support the integrity of the tax and superannuation systems to engender community trust, confidence and willing participation.
