"On 5 February 2013, the Senate passed a motion ordering the Commissioner of Taxation to provide this committee, by no later than 15 February 2013, with details of the revenue collected from the MRRT by the ATO since 1 July 2012. ... This motion came about as a result of the Treasurer's persistent refusal to reveal how much or how little the MRRT had raised in revenue. ... Based on revenue raised to date, it is likely that the MRRT will come in more than 90 per cent below the Treasurer's $4 billion net revenue forecast for 2012-13 in his July 2010 pre-election Economic Update. The MRRT revenue so far has even come in more than 90 per cent below the already halved $2.0 billion MRRT revenue estimate in the Mid-Year Economic Fiscal Outlook (MYEFO) 2012-13, which was released on 22 October 2012. The purpose of this inquiry was to consider how the Commonwealth ended up in such a fiscal mess courtesy of the government's manifestly failed MRRT. In particular, the committee sought to assess how the development and the design of the MRRT has contributed to the massive shortfall in revenue relative to government projections, when the government had already spent all the money they thought the MRRT would raise and more."--Background and overview of the inquiry.
