A police investigation into a fake document used in a political attack by cabinet minister Angus Taylor has been referred to the Australian Federal Police.

Mr Taylor's office in November used a doctored document to attack the travel expenses of Sydney lord mayor Clover Moore.

The NSW Police financial crime squad launched a strike force to investigate whether 'any criminal offences' were committed in the document's creation.
