Taxpayers falling behind on tax debts and lodgement obligations can soon expect contact from the ATO as it confirms the resumption of its compliance activities in the wake of JobKeeper ending.

With the JobKeeper program officially over, the Tax Office has now confirmed that it will resume pursuing and enforcing debt recovery action.

The change in approach comes after the ATO began sending letters to taxpayers in February to warn them of potential sterner action if they failed to make good on their obligations and had refused to get in touch with the Tax Office.
