The introduction of s.66H of the Stamp Duties Act 1920 (NSW) in 1994, enabled farmers in certain circumstances to transfer farmlands to the next generation without the payment of stamp duty if the transfer was executed on or after 14 September 1994. Since then the guidelines have been changed three times. This article highlights the flexibility of the guidelines and the ease with which the guidelines can be changed.
