External collection agencies to enforce ATO lodgement obligations
The ATO has finalised a trial relating to sending overdue taxpayer lodgement obligations to external collection agencies.
As a result, it may now refer taxpayers to an external collection agency to secure tax return lodgement.
The ATO has stated that it will only refer a taxpayer to an external collection agency where the taxpayer takes no action in response to its initial correspondence letters.
