Back to Making Tax Simpler

Using this website

This website sets out some of the Government’s ideas for modernising the Tax Administration Act.

You can find the index of all proposals and the background to them, by clicking on the LEARN MORE/TELL US heading, or choosing the area you're  interested in at the top of each page - e.g. Getting it right from the start.

From either of these you can choose the subjects you're most interested in. More information is given about each subject.

The Government is interested in feedback on its ideas on these subjects, for example:  Do you have any comments on the proposal to allow consent-based sharing of Inland Revenue information for the provision of public services?

All questions are identified by bolded dark orange text.  Once a question has been accessed, the question link will change from dark orange to grey to help identify questions that have been accessed or commented on.

On a question page like this, you can:

  • Post a comment in reply to the question. You'll need to provide a name (which does not need to be your real name) and email address , and your comment will appear on the site once it has been checked.
  • Post a comment in reply to someone else's comment. The same rules as above apply here.
  • Indicate whether you agree (thumbs up) or disagree (thumbs down) with someone else's comment. No name or email address is required to do this.

Please note that the forum will be closed for moderation from 22 December until 4 January. Comments made during this period will be posted as soon as possible after 4 January.
