Trust law income versus tax law income.
22 Oct 07 |
Issue: Issue 9 2007
Cajkusic concerned a situation where the Commissioner issued default assessments to beneficiaries of a family trust under s.97 and Part IVA of the ITAA36. The default assessments related to the disallowance of deductions claimed by the trustee of the trust in each on the 1997 and 1998 years for contributions made, and implementation costs incurred, in relation to an employee benefit arrangement. The Commissioner's disallowance of the deductions resulted in the Trust having "net income" in the 1998 income year and the issue became whether the Trust had any "income" under section 97 of the ITAA36 so that the beneficiaries could be assessed on their proportion of the Trust's "net income".
