We carry out compliance activities—including audits and investigations—to ensure that taxpayers pay the right amount of tax, duty or royalty, and that nobody receives money they’re not entitled to.
The information we collect comes from various sources, and our compliance activities identify people or organisations who are not meeting their obligations. Some of our collection methods include data matching, referrals from other agencies and random sampling.
We also receive information from the community about tax avoidance and fraudulent activity. If you know of someone doing the wrong thing, you can report it anonymously.
Ultimately, we want to help you (Queensland taxpayers and your advisers) to understand your rights and obligations, and we encourage and support voluntary compliance. For example, we’ll send email and text messages to remind you of your obligations if you receive a concession or grant.
