Public Hearings with Commissioner of Taxation

In November 2006, the Committee and the Commissioner of Taxation agreed that the Australian Taxation Office would, in the interests of greater public accountability and transparency, appear before the Committee twice a year to answer questions about the Tax Office’s administration of the tax system. Biannual hearing took place from April 2007 onwards. In September 2011, the Committee decided to expand the format to include witnesses from the Tax Office’s scrutiny bodies and industry associations, conducting hearings annually.

Following the establishment of the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Tax and Revenue in 2013, the JCPAA resolved to no longer conduct recurrent public hearings with the Commissioner of Taxation.
