ATO Data Matching Programs
The ATO has announced the following two data matching programs.
It is going to go to:
- Centrelink and Veterans’ Affairs to collect names, addresses and other related information of taxpayers who received tax-free government pensions or benefits in 2010/11 and 2011/12 and compare them with their claims for dependent tax offsets; and
- Local Councils and Shires throughout Queensland, Tasmania, NSW and Victoria to acquire details of payments to approximately 20,500 individual contractors in 2010/11 and 2011/12.
