|Commissioner Chris Jordan, AO|
The year as state chairman was a highlight. I really enjoyed the ability to set some directions and be a spokesperson on national council. I was very honoured to be able to represent The Tax Institute.
What’s been really pleasing is to see The Tax Institute maintain relevance. The Institute is as relevant today as it was 30 years ago – if not more so. It has been able to stay vibrant and be part of the tax debate and The Tax Institute is still the preeminent body in terms of tax.
I think my appointment is an opportunity for everyone – for the ATO and you in the profession – to stand back and think about how we can make our tax system better. How we can represent our clients in the best possible way to recognise that there will always be some issues with the ATO, and help us resolve the issues for clients, for the betterment of the tax system in the long run.”
