The ATO will access data from the Department of Home Affairs on passenger movements during the 2016/17 to 2022/23 financial years, and match it with certain sections of ATO data holdings to identify taxpayers that can be provided with tailored information to help them meet their tax and superannuation obligations, or to ensure compliance with taxation and superannuation laws.
Data items include names, dates of birth, arrival and departure dates, passport Information, and status types (visa status, residency, lawful, Australian citizen).
The ATO estimates that records relating to approximately 670,000 individuals will be obtained each financial year.
Please contact our team on 03 9708 8801 or email email@example.com if you have any queries in relation to the ATO’s data matching programs.
