The failure to lodge a family trust election form
on time may have serious consequences for the
taxpayer as well as the tax practitioner.
Nevertheless, ATO audits have identified many
tax practitioner clients who have failed to lodge a family trust election form on time. Due to the

are not aware of all the cases where they should
advise their clients to make the family trust
