State Taxes Consultative Council

The State Taxes Consultative Council was established in December 1992 to facilitate our communications with peak professional bodies.

In 2020–21, meetings were held online in September, November, March and June, and provided representative members with the opportunity to bring issues faced by the various industries to our attention. These meetings enabled discussions on legislative and legal matters, key issues such as the implementation of government initiatives or changes to administrative practices, publications and customer education programs.

The council is a valued and respected forum for us to connect with Victoria’s tax technical industry.
