Martin is senior tax counsel with the Australian Taxation Office. A long time servant of the Commissioner, he acquired an Appeals Branch background before joining the Tax Counsel Network in the mid 90s. Along the way he has been involved in devising the early self assessment changes and in the development of the ill fated Tax Value Method. Martin is now the Senior Tax Counsel with national responsibility for CGT, and as such, has been the approving officer for most of the relevant Public Rulings and Tax Determinations that have been issued by the Commissioner over the last few years; assists in litigation and audit activities which involve significant CGT aspects; represents the ATO at meetings of the Losses and Capital Gains Tax Subcommittee of the National Tax Liaison Group; and works closely with the Losses and Capital Gains Tax Centre of Expertise. He is well placed to identify emerging CGT issues that will be of interest to practitioners.
