• details of lodgment obligations the taxpayer needs to give priority.
After the agency has notified the taxpayer in writing, they will phone the taxpayer (or their authorised contact) to negotiate lodgment of the overdue documents and request payment of any debt. When an agency contacts a taxpayer, they will work with them to reach agreement on how they can lodge and subsequently pay any debt.
The ATO assures taxpayers that when it works with agencies:
• the ATO doesn’t “sell” the lodgment and payment obligations – the lodgment and payment remain due and payable with the ATO; and
• the agencies aren’t paid commissions – they are paid on a fee-for-service basis.
