Canberra ACT 2600
I am pleased to provide you a copy of my most recent review into the Australian Taxation Office's (ATO) management of Debt Collection. The executive summary provides a snapshot of the issues and recommendations made to the ATO.
Although all 19 recommendations were made to the ATO, the ATO believes that they are unable to implement Recommendation 3.3 without seeking Government's consideration of the matter.
I am grateful for the support, contribution and willingness of those who provided their time, expertise and experience in the conduct of this review.
