Taxpayers intending to take a contentious approach to their tax need to ensure at least a 50 per cent chance of success if the matter went to the AAT or Federal Court. Where that taxpayer's interpretation is not based on a 'reasonably arguable position', the taxpayer becomes liable to shortfall penalties.
