Taxation Committee

Chair - Kristen Deards SC

The primary role of the Taxation Committee is to keep informed about taxation issues and, as needed, to provide advice, evaluate legislation and draft articles and submissions on relevant matters for review by the ABA Executive. Such matters include (but are not limited to) Federal tax policy, legislation and administration, including the Inspector General of Taxation.

The Committee will stay abreast of matters concerning the administration of the Federal Judicial System as it applies to Federal revenue law. It will also seek to maintain cooperative relationships with professional tax associations in which barristers play a part and to liaise with courts and revenue authorities.

A priority objective of the Committee will be to facilitate barrister contributions to the education of Australian barristers in Federal revenue law.
