INSPECTOR-GENERAL OF TAXATION

The Assistant Treasurer and Minister for Competition and Consumer Affairs, Chris Bowen MP, today acknowledged the contribution of Mr David Vos AM whose term as Inspector-General expires on 6 August 2008.

"I wish to thank Mr Vos for his valuable work as InspectorGeneral of Taxation since the inception of the position in 2003 and I wish him all the best in his future endeavours," Mr Bowen said.

"Mr Vos' commitment to the role is reflected in the fourteen reviews he has finalised during his term. The Tax Office has accepted the majority of recommendations from these reviews, resulting in significant improvements to the administration of the tax system."

The Government expects to finalise the appointment of a new Inspector-General of Taxation in the coming weeks. Until then, Mr Vos AM will act in the position of Inspector-General.
