Dear Minister

I have pleasure in presenting to you the Annual Report of the Inspector-General of Taxation (IGT) for the year ended 30 June 2014. This report has been prepared in accordance with section 41 of the Inspector-General of Taxation Act 2003 (the IGT Act).

Subsection 41(3) of the IGT Act requires that the Annual Report be tabled in each House of the Parliament within 15 sitting days of receipt.

In addition, and as required by the Commonwealth Fraud Control Guidelines, I certify that I am satisfied that the IGT has in place appropriate fraud control mechanisms that meet the IGT’s needs and comply with the guidelines applying in 2013–14.

Yours sincerely

[SIGNED]
