Revenue Ruling(pdf version)
The purpose of this ruling is to ensure that Tasmanian Revenue Online (TRO) agents, and their authorised users, are placed in the same position with respect to the imposition of penalty tax as those who lodge duty instruments directly with the State Revenue Office (SRO) for assessment by the Commissioner of State Revenue.
The policy intent of the penalty tax provisions is to match the level of penalty tax with the degree the taxpayer is responsible for the tax default. Penalty tax is also imposed as an incentive to comply with the voluntary declaration of tax liabilities.
This ruling has been updated as part of the SRO’s review of its interest and penalty tax policies.
