Dear Australian Taxation Office,

I would like to seek below information:

1) Procedures , which you use to assess each tip off.
2) How many did you assess in 2018-19 period and recommended for further investigation. Please don’t say it is very hard do look at every cases. These days everything is digital and it is only few clicks away.
3) What is the percentage in terms of no further action required type “tip off”, which have received in 2018-19? In other words, total tip offs received , reviewed and decided not to proceed further due to lack of substance.

Yours faithfully,
