Freedom of information

The ATO is required to publish information to the public as part of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) Information Publication Scheme (IPS). This requirement is in Part II of the FOI Act and has replaced the former requirement to publish a section 8 statement in an annual report.

Each agency must display a plan on its website showing what information it publishes in accordance with the IPS requirements. Our agency IPS plan is available at ato.gov.au.
