The purpose of the penalty provisions is to encourage taxpayers to take reasonable care in complying with their tax obligations. We take into account your circumstances when deciding what action to take.
If you're liable for a penalty we'll notify you in writing of the reason for the penalty, the amount and the due date for payment, which will be at least 14 days after the notice is given. You’re unable to claim a deduction for penalties we impose.
The penalty amount is calculated using either a statutory formula, based on your behaviour and the amount of tax avoided, or in multiples of a penalty unit.
