Have you lodged your tax returns? Are you on the Commonwealth Electoral Roll?

The ATO will acquire details of registered voters on the Commonwealth electoral roll from the Australian Electoral Commissioner. This data will be collected on an ongoing basis and is refreshed every three months. The data items that will be obtained are personal details of:
  • Name of the registered voter.
  • Their residential address.
  • Sex of the registered voter.
  • Date of birth.
  • Occupation
It is estimated that records for 15 million individuals will be obtained. The objectives of this data matching program are to:
  • Identify taxpayers that are not registered with the ATO when they are required to be.
  • Locate taxpayers that may have outstanding taxation and superannuation lodgement, or payment, obligations.
  • Identify potential instances of taxation or superannuation fraud.
  • Assist with the administration of Australia’s Foreign Investment Framework.
