Call for council finance officers to join ATO govt relations group

Tax or finance professionals working in local government are being asked to help improve the client experience of the Australian Taxation Office.

The ATO recently formed a government relations group to explore the tax and super issues unique to government entities and to identify opportunities to support government at all levels in complying with tax and super obligations.

Local governments are an important part of Australia’s system of government, and the ATO would welcome strong representation at the local level.

People in tax or superannuation roles in local government who would like to work collaboratively with the ATO and connect with peers from all levels of government should nominate by 27 September.

Nomination criteria can be found on the ATO website, and questions can be emailed to
