The Joint Select Committee’s work is done and their report was presented to the House of Represenatives, yesterday. One of the main provisions will be that the national identification number (NIN) will be the same as the tax identification number (TRN).
For some of us, this is sort of inevitable and had been pointed out a few years ago:
The TRN is well-established and understood and, logically, those who have it really don’t need much else in terms of confirming their personal identification, especially as its also embodied in driver’s licences (which have picture ID), and both have digitally stored information, already. This is something I pointed out in my comments to the select committee.
