Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 7 Hansard (2 August) . . Page.. 2699 ..


Mr Barr: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

If an appeal or objection finds a taxpayer has been overcharged, the relevant taxpayer's account is generally adjusted to reverse the overcharging, plus any necessary adjustments for interest. Not all successful appeals result in the returning of money to taxpayers as the tax in dispute may not have been received by the ACT Revenue Office. There is no separate record keeping of the value of payments returned to taxpayers following successful appeals and objections. Answering this question would require a detailed examination of the accounts of around 500 taxpayers with successful and partially successful objections and appeals over the period since 2007-08. This would entail a considerable diversion of resources resulting in interruptions and delays to the work of the ACT Revenue Office.

Government—payments (Question No 1342)

Mr Coe asked the Treasurer, upon notice, on 11 May 2018:

Can the Treasurer provide a breakdown of the value of payments made by individuals while their objection applications and appeals were being processed by the ACT Revenue or ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal by (a) objection type, (b) payment type, such as charge, interest, penalty and (c) number of payees, during (i) 2007-08, (ii) 2008-09, (iii) 2009-10, (iv) 2010-11, (v) 2011-12, (vi) 2012-13, (vii) 2013-14, (viii) 2014-15, (ix) 2016-17 and (x) 2017-18 to date.

Mr Barr: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

There is no separate recording of payments made by taxpayers while objections and appeals are being processed. Providing an answer to this question would require a detailed examination of around 2,700 accounts over the time period between when a taxpayer's objection was received and when it was finalised (either from an objection decision or an ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal ruling). This would entail a considerable diversion of resources, resulting in interruptions and delays to the work of the ACT Revenue Office.

Government—concession programs (Question No 1344)

Mr Coe asked the Treasurer, upon notice, on 11 May 2018:

Can the Treasurer provide a breakdown of the total (a) number of applications for assistance, rebates, or concessions received by the ACT Revenue Office under community concession and assistance programs, (b) number of applications approved and (c) value of payments made broken down by type of assistance program or scheme during (i) 2007-08, (ii) 2008-09, (iii) 2009-10, (iv) 2010-11, (v) 2011-12, (vi) 2012-13, (vii) 2013-14, (viii) 2014-15, (ix) 2015-16, (x) 2016-17 and (x) 2017-18 to date.

Mr Barr: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

This data is provided in the response to Question on Notice 1340.
