My wife the billionaire... and the proposed small business CGT concession changes.
10 Nov 08 |
WEEKLY TAX BULLETIN
Issue: No 45 2008
Proposed changes to the small business CGT concessions were released in an exposure draft for public comment on 14 October 2008. In a tax technical sense, these changes address the circumstances in which your spouse (and entities associated with your spouse) are 'affiliates' for the purpose of the CGT concessions. In a policy sense, the issue is the degree to which you and your spouse are considered a single economic unit, as opposed to respecting each of you as individual taxpayers.
