This course deals with the practical operation of the rule making and dispute resolution in the Australian tax system.

More specifically it covers: the functional limits of legislative supervision; the interaction of the bureaucracy and self-assessing taxpayers (with particular emphasis on Rulings). This includes the methods of auditing self-assessment. It considers the various avenues available to taxpayers to challenge acts or omissions on the part of the Commissioner and the various legal processes available to taxpayers. This includes a review of the main constitutive rules of courts and the Administrative Appeals Tribunal. The course develops a working familiarity with the framework of review, taxpayer remedies and other legal material on tax procedure.
