Publishers Australia Excellence Awards
I am proud to announce that Taxation in Australia was a finalist in the category of Association or Member Organisation Magazine of the Year in the Publishers Australia Excellence Awards. The only journal to win a place, the judging panel commented that “Taxation in Australia is clean and readable for such text-heavy, but relevant, copy”.
I hope you’ll join me in offering congratulations to the team that work so hard in bringing you this journal every month.
