Tax Payers Responsibility
In Australia, it is the responsibility of the tax payer or organisation to act according to law in their obligations to the tax office (ATO). This is as required by the legislation administered by the Commissioner of Taxation ('Commissioner') who's job is to ensure compliance of taxation laws with penalties and prosecutions.

The Main Taxation Offenses
The main taxation offenses include the Income Tax Assessment Act of 1936, the Taxation Administration Act of 1953, the Fring Benefit Tax Assessment of 1986 and the Sales Tax Assessment of 1992.

More specifically, taxation offenses include making false and misleading statements, failing to correctly keep accounting records, failure to lodge taxation returns or activity statements (BAS) and failure to pay tax or remit the tax deduction of employees.
