ATO data matching - Motor vehicle

The ATO will acquire information for the 2016-17, 2017-18 and 2018-19 financial years on vehicles that have been transferred or newly registered where the purchase price or market value is equal to or greater than $10,000. Data will be acquired from the eight state and territory motor vehicle registry authorities.

It is estimated that records of 1.5 million individuals in each year will be electronically matched with ATO data holdings to identify non-compliance with obligations under tax and superannuation laws.
