Yesterday, Perth-based members of The Tax Institute met with Robert Jeremenko, Chief of Staff of the Federal Government's Tax White Paper Unit and Sasha Grebe, Senior Adviser, Tax White Paper Unit to join in the national conversation on tax reform. Members had the opportunity to raise issues and provide their thoughts on matters that have been posited in the Tax Discussion Paper directly with the Tax White Paper Unit.
There are many other ways members can get involved in this conversation and we encourage members to use all channels available to have a say. In particular, we encourage members to contact us via Tax Policy if you want to get involved in the tax reform discussion.
There are plenty of other issues floating around that the Tax Policy team are or have been working on, ranging from the re-write of the taxation of the managed investment trust rules, through to the administration of the tax secrecy and transparency provisions and the South Australian State Tax Review. We encourage members to refer to the Submissions page on our website to see what we've been working on recently.
