Australian Taxation Office
Section 1: Overview, Appropriations and Budget Measures Summary
The role of the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) is to manage and shape taxation, excise and superannuation systems that give effect to social and economic policy and fund services for Australians. Through these systems the ATO is the Government's principal revenue collection agency. In 2000-01, the ATO will collect 96 per cent of the Government's revenue on behalf of the Australian community.
The ATO also supports the delivery of community benefits, having roles in other services, including:
- Private Health Insurance;
- Family Assistance;
- the Australian Valuation Office;
- the Development Allowance Authority; and
- cross-agency support, such as working with Centrelink to reduce benefit fraud, and with the Australian Bureau of Statistics to reduce the cost to the community of collecting statistics.
The total appropriation for the ATO in the 2000-01 Budget is $4,670.2 million. Table 1.1, on the following page, shows the total appropriations by administered expenses, price of output appropriation and agency capital (equity injections and loans).
