Back to Making Tax Simpler

What do you think about the specific criteria and the safeguards proposed to apply to the Commissioner’s extended administrative flexibility?


Peter Ertel

The problem with discretion is the lack of consistent application. Sometimes it feels like it's "personal" for the officer and they are not prepared to give an inch or relate to the person's "hardship" in say a relief application, or exceptional circumstances considerations are so restrictive to be a waste of time having them.
I actually think the current TAA is fine as drafted but it's the Policy Statements around applying them that is the problem.
