Do not request personal information using this site. Why?

The Australian Taxation Office is the Federal Government's main revenue collection agency. The Tax Office is headed by the Commissioner of Taxation, a statutory official appointed under the provisions of the Taxation Administration Act 1953. Our aim is to manage and shape the revenue systems that sustain social and economic policy, and fund services for Australians. Our main role is to administer legislation for taxes, superannuation and excise (but not customs duty). We also address broader issues affecting Australia's revenue systems, such as aggressive tax planning, persistent tax debtors, globalisation and the cash economy. The Tax Office also supports the delivery of community benefits, with roles in other areas such as private health insurance, family assistance and cross agency support.
