As of today, the use and ‘abuse’ of ATO garnishee notices are to be reviewed by the Inspector-General of Taxation.
The review is said to have been inspired by the #FourCorners program that many would be familiar with.
The review will include the consideration of “how the ATO considers circumstances of taxpayers such as vulnerable small businesses and individuals.”

Thanks to John Winter for the find.
