In the August 2004 edition of inTAX the authors examined Conti J's decision in McNeil v FCT (2004) 55 ATR 384 ("An imponderable taxing provision - or a thorn by any other name').
This month's article focuses on the decision of the Full Federal Court which was handed down on 8 August 2005 ( FCT v McNeil FCAFC 147 (to be reported in ATR)).
The authors write that this case has the potential to become the next Hepples of CGT, with the taxpayer having derived a gain which seemingly escapes both the income tax and CGT nets. Not surprisingly, the Commissioner has lodged an application for special leave to appeal to the High Court.
