Investigation Report 01/2010: An investigation into allegations about the Australian Crime Commission relating to the communication of information obtained under section 3E of the Taxation Administration Act 1953

In a law enforcement context, mishandling certain information has the potential to pervert the course of justice. Commonwealth taxation legislation requires, generally, that information regarding individual taxpayers be kept confidential. This investigation examined whether provision of such material to a court was permitted by law.
