This paper considers ethics and integrity in tax administration. The paper specifically focuses on income tax self assessment and issues associated with it in the context of ethics and integrity. Then the paper considers the Australian tax compliance model along with the roles of tax advisors and of tax administrators in the self assessment process and suggests some strategies for encouraging an ethical approach by both of these groups as well as taxpayers in an income tax system.
