Tax Integrity Measures

The Government will continue to target the black economy and will provide $32 million to extend the funding of audit and compliance programs by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) for another year. These programs are designed to counter behaviours related to the black economy, such as non-lodgement of tax returns, omission of income on returns and non- payment of employer obligations.

A further focus of the Government is to prohibit the manufacture, distribution, possession, use or sale of electronic point-of-sale suppression technology and software, which can be used to delete selected transactions from electronic records.

The ATO will continue its compliance work against serious and organised crime and will provide $28.2 million to the ATO to target serious and organised crime in the tax system. This extends an existing measure by a further four years to 30 June 2021.
