Tax re­turn alert

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

Fail­ing to lodge a tax re­turn is cost­ing Aus­tralians more than just a slap on the wrist. Tech­nol­ogy ad­vances are giv­ing the Aus­tralian Tax­a­tion Of­fice un­prece­dented power to track trans­ac­tions and catch the more than 10 per cent of res­i­dents who don’t pay tax. Crim­i­nal con­vic­tions, com­mu­nity ser­vice or­ders and be­ing re­fused loans or Cen­tre­link pay­ments are among the ram­i­fi­ca­tions, tax ex­perts have warned.
